Syosset Announces Calendar Changes

District adjusts calendar after days missed during Sandy aftermath.

Syosset School District announced Tuesday that seven vacation days would be removed from the 2012-13 school calendar.

The district announced on their website that classes would be in session Feb. 19-22, the original February break, as well as on the three makeup days that were already factored into the calendar April 1-2 and May 24.

Schools will still be closed Wednesday for Thanksgiving break and for Presidents' Day on Feb. 18.

Syosset, like many other districts on Long Island, applied for a waiver from Governor Andrew Cuomo's office that would decrease the amount of required days of instruction. The waivers have not yet been approved.
