OXFORD – Superintendent of Schools Allen Himmelberger asked the Oxford School Committee to reconsider its decision to make November 21 a full school day, and instead make it a half day, in a final change to the 2012-13 school calendar, at their meeting on Monday night.
The committee voted unanimously to change the full day on November 21 to a half-day and make June 11 the final school day of the year instead of June 12.
During the superintendent’s segment, Himmelberger sent out a word of the wise to Oxford High School seniors who will be graduating in five weeks. “I encourage seniors to enjoy the moment and to be safe from now until the end of the year.”
Committee member Marc Peterson, who will soon be retiring, paid tribute to both the Oxford Middle School and Oxford High School on the success of their recent school plays. He said that they both “did a tremendous job.”
The Oxford School Committee will meet again on May 7.
