BEND, OR -- Bend-La Pine Schools officials have decided to extend the school year, to make up for days lost by the late winter storm. Students across Central Oregon were out of school for four days at the end of February when massive snowfall blanketed the area, making some roads impassable. 


Thursday afternoon, Bend-La Pine Schools released a revised calendar for the 2018-2019 school year, including changes to parent-teacher conferences previously scheduled as half days. Those will now be full school days. The last day of school for grades K-11 also changes; it's now Friday, June 14. Graduation ceremonies don't change.
