District Five's Board of Trustees has approved the school calendar for 2017-18, allowing our families to go ahead and start preparing for next school year. The approval comes after Governor Henry McMaster signed into law a one-year waiver that allows school districts to start school earlier than the traditional 3rd Monday in August. District Five, like all districts in Spartanburg County, will now begin class on Thursday, August 17, under the new calendar.
Under the new calendar, students would have winter break from December 22- January 5. Spring holidays would be the week of April 2-6, 2018. The last day of school for students would be May 31, 2018.
