Bluffton-Harrison school board OK's 2016-17 calendar

A school calendar approved by school board members Monday calls for students to return to classes Aug. 8.

That's two days earlier than this year's start date but, according to Bluffton-Harrison Metropolitan School District Superintendent Wayne Barker, it's normal.

School typically starts on the second Monday in August, he said, and Aug. 8 is the second Monday in August.

The calendar also includes a full-week fall break in October, a first for Bluffton-Harrison.

Other area school districts, including Northern Wells Community Schools, is considering including a weeklong fall break in its 2016-17 calendar. Its board could approve that at a meeting today at Norwell High School.
