Summer vacation begins
Classes were dismissed for the 2013-14 school year yesterday in the Mt. Pleasant Community School District. The photos show middle-school students sprinting from the building when the final bell sounded.
This year’s summer vacation will be a bit shorter as classes will begin on Aug. 12. Looking ahead, the 2014-15 term will end May 15, 2015, and graduation will be May 17, 2015.
The early start and early dismissal are because of possible addition of air conditioning at the elementary schools during the summer of 2015. During this August, there will be early out each day.
