Mon Feb 11, 2019

The 2018-19 school year is far from over, but next year's schedule is now in place. Classes will begin Aug. 19, 2019 and end May 27, 2020.

Longview ISD Board of Trustees approved the 2019-20 District Calendar during their Feb. 11th regular meeting.

Important dates for next school year include:

• Aug. 19 – First day for students
• Sept. 2 – Labor Day (observed)
• Nov. 25-29 – Thanksgiving Break
• Dec. 23-Jan. 3 – Winter Break
• Jan. 20 – Dr. Martin Luther King Day (observed)
• March 9-13 – Spring Break
• April 10 – Good Friday (observed)
• May 25 – Memorial Day (observed)
• May 27 – Final day of school
• May 28, 29 – Bad weather makeup days (if needed)

Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox said state legislation prevents schools from starting prior to the fourth Monday in August, but thanks to LISD recently being approved as a District of Innovation, school will be able to start (and end) a bit earlier than previous years.

"We feel like this calendar provides the most accommodation for our students, staff, and their families," he added.
