Junction City School Board adjusts 2019-20 calendar – Approving furlough days and layoffs

At their regular meeting on Monday, May 18, 2020, the Junction City School District Board of Directors approved a calendar adjustment that will conclude the 2019-20 school year one week earlier than originally scheduled. This means that the last day of school for students has shifted from Wednesday, June 17th to Wednesday, June 10, 2020. In addition, one of the five furlough days that our licensed staff has accepted, will be on Friday, June 5th, making that day a non-school day for students.
