Calendar Changes

Tarkio R-1 Families,


As we all know, January was a trying time for getting school open on a consistent basis!  Due to all of our missed days thus far this school year, including construction and weather, we are needing to make up a total of 33.22 hours of school.  On Friday, February 2nd, the Tarkio Board of Education voted to amend the 2023-2024 calendar to make up for our missed days thus far.  Below, you will find a list of days that school will now be in session:


  1. Thursday February 15th will now be a full day of school

  2. Friday February 16th will now be a school day.  Full day of school instead of a day off.

  3. Monday February 26th will now be a half day of school. School will dismiss at 12:30.

  4. Monday April 15th will now be a full day of school.  No Professional Development that day.

  5. Friday May 17th will now be a full day of school.

  6. Monday May 20th will now be a full day of school

  7. Tuesday May 21st will now be a full day of school


Currently, the following list of days will still be no-school days.


  1. Monday February 19th- Presidents day is still a day off of school UNLESS we have a snow day prior to February 19th.  IF we have a snow day between now and Feb. 19th we will use this as a make-up day.

  2. Monday March 18th-  We will not have school this day- it will be a Teacher Professional Development day.

  3. Friday March 29th- Good Friday-  There will be no school on this day.

  4. Monday April 1st-  The Monday following Easter will be a day off of school UNLESS we need to use it as a snow day.  This is designated as a potential make-up school day should we have two or more additional snow days.


Currently, school is set to dismiss on Tuesday May 21st at 3:00.  Of course, these plans could be altered IF we have additional snow days.  Thank you for your understanding.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Barnes at the Tarkio Elementary School Office.
