Hopkins School Board Approves 2022-23 Calendar

At the January 18 School Board Meeting, the Hopkins School Board approved the calendar for the 2022-23 School Year. Next year’s calendar adds three new holidays - Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Eid-al-Fitr. These changes reflect a recommendation made by the Reimagine School Day Structures committee that the academic calendar better reflect Hopkins’ diverse student body. The calendar also removes late starts and instead opts for full-day professional development for staff. The first day of school once again starts before Labor Day on Aug. 29, and spring break is the first week of April.

Oscar Wolfe, a student school board representative, gave an impassioned endorsement of the decision to add the High Holidays and Eid-al-Fitr to the calendar.

“For most students, this will be a minor change, but for those students who are for the first time having their holidays honored, this is a really big deal,” said Wolfe. “Not only will it help students who are in the religious minority, it will also help students who are in the religious majority get a better perspective about the other cultures in Hopkins.” 

 

If you would like to hear Wolfe’s comments in full they start at 1:42:28 of the January 18 School Board meeting.
