Board of Education approves 2020-21 calendar

calendar October 3, 2019 -- The Vestavia Hills Board of Education on Monday approved the school system's 2020-21 calendar. 

The 2020-21 school year will begin on Thursday, August 13, 2020 and will end on Thursday, May 27, 2021.

The calendar includes at least one holiday in each month of the school year, including a five-day weekend for students in October 2020 and a four-day weekend for students in February 2021. Schools will be closed for two and a half weeks during the winter break in late December and early January. 

The calendar was developed through the collaboration of a calendar committee including numerous parents, teachers, school administrators, city officials, and community partners. The committee will reconvene in spring 2020 to design a calendar for the 2021-22 school year.

A PDF version of the calendar is available for download on the school system’s Calendar webpage. Parents and stakeholders can also subscribe to an interactive version of the calendar by clicking this iCal link or by downloading the free Vestavia Hills City Schools mobile app for iPhone and Android.
