Calendar and Holiday Dates

Looking for term/holiday dates?

Please note: In the past, we have spoken to some parents/guardians that searched the internet for Standish Community High School holiday dates (or other similar search terms) and were misinformed by taking dates found on other websites to be correct. The only reliable source for this information is provided by Standish Community High School itself, such as on this very web page or on the Term Dates page in the student planner that is issued to every student each year.
