From the Superintendent – Spring 2019

Welcome to Holt Public Schools! It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write the 12th of what I hope will be many Ram Quarterly (RQ) welcome letters to you and our extraordinary community! For those who are just joining the Holt Public Family, I would like to sincerely welcome you to our district. We are here to serve you and hope that you will soon feel our district pride and our attitude of gratitude! I remain excited to assist you.

Our 2019-2020 school calendars were negotiated with the Holt Education Association two years ago. Thus, this upcoming school calendar will be like what we lived the past two school years. We will again be starting school before Labor Day this fall. Our balanced calendar schools (Sycamore and Horizon) will continue to start in early August—this year on August 1. The rest of our schools will start on August 21. Please plan accordingly. Below you will find a summary of our break schedule:

District Pride, Community Wide!
