Every year, due to the MCAS Long Composition test taken state-wide by all 4th grade students, Newton Public Schools “flips” the short day from a Tuesday to a Wednesday in March.  This year the 4th grade will take the MCAS Long Composition test on Tuesday, March 19, so the flip will occur on March 19th and 20th.  The schedule will be as follows:

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 – All students (except Group B Kindergarten) will be dismissed at 3pm.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 – All students will be dismissed at 12:30pm.
