With many Monte Hewett communities, past and present, in Cobb county, we wanted to pass along information about proposed changes to the school calendar. Cobb County has posted 4 options for the school calendar for the next 3 school years. If you are a Cobb County school parent and you would like to voice your opinion, you need to contact your District Board member directly. You will find a list of the Board members and the schools they represent here.
Below are four options for the District’s school calendar. Each link opens a PDF file of a calendar for the 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years.
- Current Calendar – Most closely resembles the 2009-2010 school year calendar; First day of school is second week of August; last day of school one week before Memorial Day.
- Mid-August Start Date Calendar – First day of school begins one week later in August; three-day Thanksgiving; Winter Break shortened three days; last day of school one week before Memorial Day in 2010-2011 & 2011-2012.
- Current Calendar Plus February Vacation – Resembles current calendar but adds week off in February; last day of school is Friday before Memorial Day.
- Balanced Calendar – First day of school is first week of August; one-week vacation breaks at mid-term in September and February; last day of school is Friday before Memorial Day.
