Full week of spring break to continue

September 28, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
The full week of spring break in the Marshalltown Community School District calendar will continue into the near future. The calendar for the 2012-13 school year was approved by the school board recently and it includes an entire week in late March 2013 off of school. The current school year will also have an entire week of spring break in the first week of April 2012. “The staff is very adamant about needing time off,” said Lisa Koester, director of human resources with the district. “Not only for themselves, but for the kids.” The 2012-13 calendar will begin on Aug. 21, 2012 and end at May 30, 2013, barring snow days. Koester said the calendar is extended to allow for the entire week of spring break. “(Staff) would rather go that extra few days and have a spring break,” she said.
