Second High School Will Be Called Bentonville West

Bentonville West will be the name and the wolverine will be the mascot of the second high school, the School Board decided Monday.


The 2014-15 Calendar

The School Board on Monday adopted traditional and nontraditional calendars for the 2014-15 school year. Both calendars include more makeup days built into them than this year's calendars had.

The traditional calendar has Jan. 16 and 19 set aside as the first two make-up days. Make-up days three through eight are scheduled for May 29 and June 4 through 8. The ninth and 10th make-up days would be the first and second days of spring break (March 23 and 24). The calendar stipulates Saturdays may be used during the second semester if the district needs to make up additional days.

The nontraditional calendar, which applies to Baker and Elm Tree elementary schools, also uses Jan. 16 and 19 as make-up days. The first three days of the February intersession are possible makeup days as well, along with the first two days of spring break and the first three days of the April/May intersession.

Once school year calendars are set, any changes must be approved by the administration, School Board and staff members.
