Martin County - Monday November 21, 2022: As a result of Hurricanes Ian and Nicole, students enrolled in the Martin County School District have missed four (4) days of instruction this school year. In an effort to maximize instructional time and mitigate learning loss, the decision has been made to use two of the Hurricane Makeup Days that are included on the 2022-2023 instructional calendar.

School will be in session on Monday, December 19, and Tuesday, December 20, 2022. All employees will work their regular hours and students will follow their normal bell schedule. Winter Break will begin Wednesday, December 21, 2022, and conclude Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Classes will resume on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

“As circumstances we’ve encountered over the past couple of years have demonstrated, there is simply no substitute for in-person instructional time,” Superintendent Dr. John D. Millay said. “Our students need every opportunity to experience quality teaching and learning. While this was a difficult decision to make, we know that making up two school days is what is best for our students and their growth as learners.”

Located on Florida's Treasure Coast, the Martin County School District (MCSD) offers an array of opportunities for students based on their unique interests, needs and passions. MCSD maintains robust academic standards, renowned arts and athletics programs, and numerous career and technical education opportunities. Students benefit from the District's many partnerships with business and community organizations, as well as character development, environmental stewardship and civic leadership programs. The mission of MCSD is to educate all students for success.
