2021-22 Calendar Changes

  • Updated Friday, Jan. 21, 2022


    Dear Mapleton Families, 

    We thank you for your support and flexibility regarding recent calendar changes. As we continue to manage recent spikes and surges, we are announcing three additional late start days for this school year.

    With substitute positions still tricky, and sometimes impossible, to fill, our teachers lean on each other to assure engaging content is offered to each student, in each classroom, every school day, often missing out on valuable plan time. Late starts give our teachers back some of this essential time to plan and prepare.

    Additional 2-hour late start days:

    • Wednesday, March 2
    • Wednesday, April 6 (this is also a remote day for grades 9-12)
    • Wednesday, May 11

    As a reminder, we also have a late start day on Wednesday, Jan. 26.

    On a late start day:

    • Classes begin exactly two hours after the normal start time. Bus pick-up times are also delayed by two hours.
    • All zero hour classes are canceled.
    • All full-day and half-day funded preschool classes are canceled. Employee care and tuition-based childcare are open. 
    • All staff report at the normal time. 


    Please know this change comes after much consideration as to what we can do to support our teachers so they can continue to support our students. It is our highest priority to always offer safe, engaging environments for our students to learn and thrive. Thank you for your partnership and support of Mapleton Public Schools.
