DCPS Calendars

Calendar Updates as of June 15, 2020

DCPS has released the academic calendar for School Year 2020-2021. For SY20-21, the first day of school for students is Monday, August 31, 2020, and the last day of school for students is Thursday, June 24, 2021.

We remain grounded in our commitment to engage every student, every day in rigorous and joyful learning in a safe and nurturing environment — in school or at home. While DCPS supported 10 weeks of learning at home this spring during SY19-20, we are prioritizing instruction time to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on student learning in SY20-21.

This means that we will add five instructional days for students by reducing three professional development (PD) days for staff to accommodate as much in-person instruction as health conditions allow.

To help our students as they transition into the next school year, we will hold a Summer Bridge program for students entering grades 3, 6, and 9. Should health conditions allow, Summer Bridge will take place in-person for two weeks in August. It will take place Monday to Thursday from August 10-13 and 17-20, and advance registration will be required for this optional program. More information for students and families is coming soon.
