New state law and our school calendar

FZ working to adjust 2020-2021 school year to meet requirements 


Dear Parents,

We wanted to give you an update on the impact of House Bill 604, the new law mandating that Missouri school districts cannot begin the school year more than 14 days before the first Monday in September. In the case of the 2020-2021 school year, this date is Aug. 24.

The Board of Education and the Fort Zumwalt Education Association had negotiated and agreed upon a calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The new law has voided that calendar and the two groups are working to make the necessary adjustments to stay within the requirements of the law. It is our hope to have this process completed and approved by both groups within the next two months. 

We will share the calendar as soon as the process is complete on a new tab of the Quick Calendar sheet of our website.

Thank you for your patience during this process.

Sincerely,

Fort Zumwalt School District
