Recent snow storms are impacting June dates for the last day of school and graduation in local districts.
“The last day is now June 22,” said Brian Benigni, Superintendent of Berlin Schools, Thursday.
Last year’s last day was Friday, June 16.
He said the district has a total of six snow days. The most recent was two consecutive days, Wednesday and Thursday, due to the nor’easter that hit the area.
Due to the snow days, Benigni said the Berlin High School graduation had to be moved to the last Sunday in June.
Historically Berlin graduation is always Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17. The traditional date however is a few days short of the 180 days needed which will be reached on Tuesday, June 19.
Graduation is now planned for Sunday, June 24, at Welte Hall at Central Connecticut State University.
The last day of school is expected to be the Friday before graduation.
Plainville is also up to six total snow days and recently had both Wednesday and Thursday off during the storm.
Superintendent Maureen Brummett said the last day of school is expected to be Tuesday, June 19.
“The last day of school is also the day we typically hold graduation, which I expect to be the case for this year as well,” Brummett said.
Last year’s last day of school and graduation day was Thursday, June 15.
She said the district does not expect to have to cut the upcoming April vacation.
With the possibility of another storm next week, school officials are keeping an eye on the number of snow days.
Benigni said school is scheduled until June 30 if needed. After the district reaches that date, April vacation can be cut.
More information on school schedules can be found on the district websites.
