Swanton, Evergreen finalize end of the year schedules

End of the year plans have been finalized for students at Evergreen and Swanton schools.

In Swanton, according to superintendent Chris Lake, no new assignments are to be given out after Friday, May 15. The second semester ends on Friday, May 29.

“Our goal is to give kids that last two weeks of the year to get caught up on any work that they might have fallen behind on,” said Lake. “We have a handful of kids who have not been able to keep up with the pace of work so we felt it was best to give them some breathing room to get caught up.”

At Evergreen, the last day for new instruction for preschool through grade 11 is May 8. The last day to turn in assignments is May 22.

For seniors, the last day to turn in assignments is Tuesday, May 12. Their last instruction came back on April 28.
