JANUARY 18TH IS A REGULAR SCHOOL DAY:

You may have noticed that January 18th on the district calendar is shaded.  This typically means that the day is off for students. However, this is a mistake on the calendar. January 18th is a regular day of school for all students. The next scheduled student holiday is Monday, January 21st.  Sorry for the error and any confusion this may have caused.
