2020-2021 General Calendar

Dear Shorecrest Families, Faculty and Staff, 
Please see the attached calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. As we continuously evolve to meet the needs of students and families, there are a few changes that I hope you find beneficial. 
  • Students begin school on August 19. This is a week later than our typical schedule, but leaves room for the intended construction to complete Charger Commons. 
  • Students get an extra day of Winter Break. They will return on Tuesday, January 5, to allow for a Monday Professional Day for our faculty. 
  • Spring Break will be March 5-12, 2021. Students will have Friday, March 5, off, giving them 6 entire school days away for break. 
  • Upper School Service Week will be Tuesday-Friday, April 6-9. This allows us to keep our Spring Break in March and not miss two consecutive weeks during peak recruitment season for independent school teachers and administrators. 
  • The calendar allows us to complete classes before Memorial Day. 
Although we are required to have only 170 school days, we build our calendar to include 179 school days. That helps to avoid additional calendar disruption in the event of a major storm.
We strive to plan and publish this information as early as possible so our community can make plans accordingly. 
Mike Murphy
