The Smackover-Norphlet School District is seeking an Act 1240 Waiver regarding the allowable first day of school.  If approved, this waiver would allow the district to set the first student day of the calendar school year no earlier than Monday, August 13.

Current law establishes the first allowable day of school as the Monday of the week that contains August 19.  For the 2018-2019 school year that date will be Monday, August 20.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding this waiver which is being sought by the district, please contact Superintendent Dave Wilcox.
