Dear OPRF Families,

We recognize that many of you have had questions about how the two weather-related closings on January 27 and 28 have affected our school calendar for the year. We have been working with West 40, the branch of the Illinois State Board of Education that oversees our district, to make sure we are in compliance with state requirements.

We have determined that we need to add one makeup day to our school calendar. Please note the following:

1. One day has been added to the end of the school year. Students will now attend classes on Fri., May 30.
2. The date of semester-two final exams has changed for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. These students will take finals May 28- 30 (previous dates were May 27-29).
3. The date of senior finals remains the same (May 22 and 23) and will not change.
4. The date of Commencement remains the same: Sun., June 1.
5. Any days lost due to additional closings will likely be added to end of the year.

Please keep in mind that this information is current as of today. Thank you for your patience as we work through the challenges of this unusually cold winter!

Sincerely,

Dr. Steven Isoye
Superintendent
