In the wake of the winter storm and subsequent cancellation of school Monday following snow days already caused by Tropical Storm Sandy, New Canaan district officials say school will be in session both April 15 and 16—a Monday and Tuesday, originally April break—and for a half-day on June 21, a Friday.

“In the event of additional cancellations, subsequent days will be taken from April break,” Kolek said. “Should the number of required days exceed the remaining days in April vacation, we will use the last week of June to ensure we meet the state guideline of 180 days.”
Families who already have plans to be away on Feb. 15 (a half-day) or the two April school days should speak to their school’s principal directly, Kolek said.
Graduation Day will be determined at the April 1 Board of Education meeting, Kolek said.
