HAZLETON, Pa. -- Earlier this week, the rumor mill had it that the 2017-2018 school year would start on August 15th.
HASD Superintendent, Dr. Craig Butler took to social media to confirm that the rumored date was false.
"I am aware of some misinformation traveling through the Greater Hazleton community with regard to the first day of school for the 2017-2018 school year." Butler wrote. "The information on social media states, that the first day of school will be August 15, 2017."
He then went on to say that the information was inaccurate, as the school calendar for next school year has neither been developed or approved.
The 2017-2018 school calendar will be made available once it's submitted to and approved by the HASD Board of Education.
