Trustees Adjust 2020-2021 School Year Calendar with Revised Secondary Grading Periods

Published Monday, February 22, 2021

The EMS ISD Board of Trustees approved a revised 2020-2021 school year calendar to reflect updated six-week grading periods for middle and high school students.  

The new calendar moves the end of the 4th six weeks by one week, making the last day of the current grading period as March 5, 2021. The beginning of the 5th six weeks will be March 8, 2021, and end on the original date of April 16, 2021, giving five weeks in the grading cycle. The 6th six weeks will keep the original dates of April 19-May 28, 2021. No changes will be made for the elementary grading cycle. 

  • 4th Six Weeks – Ends Friday, March 5, 2021 
  • 5th Six Weeks – Begins March 8, 2021, and ends April 16, 2021 
  • 6th Six Weeks – Begins April 19, 201, and ends May 28, 2021  

This revision was made to assist our students and teachers with completing the necessary instruction, content mastery, and grading, administration following missed school days due to weather-related closures in February 2021.
