The Mansfield School Committee is considering making changes to the calendar for the 2014-2015 school year, including eliminating February Vacation, according to the Sun Chronicle.
The committee voted to recommend April 3, 2015, Good Friday, as a full day of school, but to give kids the day off on January 2, citing traditionally low attendance rates on that date. They discussed eliminating February Vacation, Feb. 16-20, 2015, though they did not come to a decision on that.
Chairwoman Kiera O'Neil said the board should hear from the town before finalizing anything.
