Updated PPS School Calendar 

Please note that the 2017-2018 Princeton Public School Calendar was amended due to the utilization of snow days.  The changes are as follows:

(1) school will be  IN session on May 25th (originally a day off), and 

(2) the last day of school is now June 20th.  

PHS graduation, which is held on the last day of school, is currently scheduled for June 20th.


If additional snow days are utilized, the last day of school (and PHS graduation) will be pushed back.  

The updated calendar can be found at[1].pdf
