The wrath of superstorm Sandy has forced Rumson schools administrators’ hands in altering the 2012-13 calendar, extending the end of the school year into the last week in June and lopping off a couple of holiday and vacation days.
There are some similarities with Fair Haven schools’ calendar alterations. For instance, both districts will now be in session on Jan. 21, Martin Luther King Day, when the original calendar had schools closed.
The original calendar had schools closed for winter recess the week of Feb 10. However, Feb. 12 has now been designated a make-up snow day, if needed and schools reopen on Feb. 13.
As with Fair Haven, there will be a single session on Good Friday, and potential snow days have been designated for April 4 and 5.
The change for the school year’s end is that there will now be single sessions extending into the last week of June, on June 24 and 25, with eighth grade graduation extended to June 24 and the last day of school now slated for June 25.
