KIPP Texas Families,
Today is the start of Spring Break for our Little KIPPsters, and I hope you plan to carve time to do things that bring you joy every day. Like me, you have likely planned for this week for some time. Let’s use this break to rejuvenate as we get ready for the last and strongest chapter of the school year.
It is with great pleasure that I’m sharing with you our draft 2023-24 academic calendar that has important changes regarding the school day minutes and early-dismissal Fridays.

Removing Early-Dismissal Fridays
To provide consistency for families and Big KIPPsters, the weekly early release day for Little KIPPsters has been removed from the new calendar. Each campus will now have a consistent school day Monday through Friday. Click here to review your school’s updated bell schedule.
Thank you for partnering with us for your child’s education. Have a fantastic Spring Break!
