Snow Make-up Days

During the Snowpocalypse of 2018-19, we had 7 snow days, 4 two-hour delays and 1 three-hour delay!  The State will allow us to waive some of those days, but we still need to make sure we have the required number of hours to meet State standards.  In order to meet the required number of hours, the Kennewick School District has come up with the following plan:  We will have three make-up days.  They are May 24th, June 13th and June 14th.

  • Wednesday, March 20th, will be our last early release Wednesday.  After that, every school day from March 21st through June 14th (including the last day of school) will be a regularly scheduled school day (8:00-2:35).
  • High school graduation will remain on June 8th.

This plan was made to cause as little disruption to families as possible.

The Snowpocalypse has also altered some of the Desert Hills’ end-of-the year activities as follows:

·        The Spring BBQ will still be during lunches on Friday, May 31st.

·        We will hand out yearbooks on Wednesday, June 12th, during 1st Period in the Cafeteria.  If your child hasn’t reserved one yet, he or she can still purchase one in the       Office for $25.00.

·       The 8th Grade Party will be Thursday, June 13th, from 1:00-2:35 in the Cafeteria.

·       The Summer Kick-off activity will be Friday, June 14th, from 1:10-2:35, and then school will be adjourned until August 27th!
