District 11 maps out the coming year

The proposed calendar for the coming school year was accepted by Anoka-Hennepin School District board members during its Jan. 14 meeting.

Turns out students will have school on two dates designated as official holidays: Monday, Oct. 14, 2013 (Columbus Day) and Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 (Veterans Day). That designation came about with a “conducting school on holidays” resolution approved unanimously by board members.
