2021-2022 Calendar Update
This year, Spring-Ford Area School District built one Emergency or Snow Day into the calendar and planned to utilize Virtual or Flexible Instruction Days (FID) in case of an emergency or snow closure. The district used the Emergency/Snow Day on September 2, 2021 following district-wide flooding and power outages. Therefore, April 13, 2022 will change to an In-Person school day. Any additional emergency or snow days will be Virtual Days.
