The Aledo Independent School District’s updated calendar shows a revision for the last week of the 2014-2015 school year. The changes were approved by the district’s Board of Trustees at the April board meeting. In accordance with the Student Attendance Accounting Handbook and the Waiver Division at the Texas Education Agency, the district cannot have an early-release day on a bad-weather makeup day. Now, Wednesday, June 3, will be a full day of classes for students. Thursday, June 4, is a bad-weather makeup day, and students will attend classes the full school day. Friday, June 5, is now the last day of school, and early release will be observed for grades K-12. Grades K-4 will release at 11:40 a.m., followed by grades 5-12 at 12:40 p.m. Buses will run accordingly.
