HARRODSBURG — Mercer County students begin classes Aug. 8, just two days earlier than they did in the 2011-12 school year.
All staff members must report to work on Aug. 7, said Betty Sims, director of pupil personnel.
School is scheduled to end for students May 20 and for employees the following day. However, school will end later if students need to make up days missed due to inclement weather.
Mercer students and school personnel have fall break Oct. 5-12, Thanksgiving break Nov. 21-23, winter holiday Dec. 20-Jan. 2 and spring break April 1-5. School closes early Dec. 19 for winter holiday.
“We are very excited about our new school year, and are looking forward to our students returning and beginning our 2012-2013 school year,” Sims said.
