On Monday, February 25, 2019, the Lynnville-Sully Community School District School Board modified the 2018-2019 school district calendar.  Iowa state law requires school districts base their calendar on 1080 hours or 180 days. The Lynnville-Sully calendar is based on 1080 hours.


Due to recent inclement weather late starts, early dismissals, and full-day cancellations, the school district is below the 1080 hours required by the state.  The following calendar modifications were decided by the school board on February 25 in order to satisfy the state requirement.



·      Full Day of School for Students and Staff on Friday, March 15. Students may be excused by parents if family functions were planned in advance. Previously, this day was a designated teacher workday.

·      Snow Make-Up Days on Tuesday, May 28, Wednesday, May 29, Thursday, May 30, Friday, May 31 (1:00 pm early dismissal).

·      The last day of school will be Friday, May 31 – 1:00 pm early dismissal.

·      We will not make-up two full days of school because more than 1080 hours were established in the 2018-2019 calendar.


NOTE: This plan is contingent on the cooperation of the weather. If there are additional full-day cancellations, late starts and/or early dismissals, this plan may be adjusted accordingly by the school board.


Shane Ehresman, Superintendent
