May 18, 2018


Dear Carden Families,


There has been much speculation in regards to extending our school year for the two we were closed during the Red For ED campaign. We will NOT need to add more days to our calendar due to meeting the instructional hour requirement. Our last day of school is May 25th. Thank you for your continued support throughout our school year.


Thank you,

Carden Administration
