First Day of School and Half-Day Information

The Board of Education has approved the revised 2021-2022 school calendar. The first day of school will be Monday, August 30. Given the success of the half-day schedule this past school year, Waterbury Public Schools has increased the number of half-days in 2021-2022 to provide for more staff collaboration time.  

  • ALL schools will follow a half-day schedule on the first Wednesday of every month. For example, Wednesday, September 1st will be a half-day for all students.
  • Only students in Commissioner’s Network (CN) schools will follow a half-day schedule every Wednesday. CN schools are Wallace Middle School, North End Middle School, West Side Middle School and Wilby High School.

The approved 2021-2022 calendar can be found here. School hours for the half-days will be posted in the coming weeks. If you have any questions regarding the schedule, please contact your child’s Principal.
