Schools to Open Prior to Labor Day

gearFor the first time in recent memory, the Scarsdale Schools will open before Labor Day weekend. This is partially due to calendar changes to accommodate the celebration of some new holidays. The schedule still allows for a full two week break from December 25 to January 5, 2024, however, It does mean that some families will be returning from their summer break earlier than in prior years. See the district calendar here.

For high school students, here is the line-up of events:

August 21
