School calendar changes in response to snow days
After missing several school days due to icy road conditions, the Gladstone School District revised the school calendar to add back instructional hours. Under the new calendar, April 17, originally planned as a staff-only day, will become a regular school day for students. In addition, 5 Wednesdays formerly planned as early-release days will become full school days. Those dates are as follows: April 5, April 19, May 3, May 17, and May 31. June 14 is also a full school day.
