  • First day – September 8th; day after Labor Day

Please reach out to the Sandwich School Committee members to offer your feedback on the proposed calendars. You can simply say which calendar you prefer, or write about why you prefer one over the other.  Your feedback will help with the planning for the 2016-2017 calendar as well so it is very important to the School Committee.
