The 2017-18 Olympia School District calendar has been approved by the Olympia School Board and is posted online.

Please note the 50-minute early release every Wednesday, except on the first day of school, for all grades. This time is set aside for teachers to collaborate on learning and receive professional development. There are also some half days scheduled during school conferences, and these half days are also noted on the calendar.

The calendar was created after extensive input from employees and parents, including more than 3,000 responses to an online survey on this topic.

Bell times are also posted on the district website. The 2017-18 bell schedules include start and end times for each school on regular school days, as well as the dismissal times for early release Wednesdays and half days.

The bell schedules represent an effort to standardize the start/end times of our elementary schools and provide consistent weekly staff collaboration and professional development.
