On December 18, 2019 the Van Buren County Board of Education approved school calendars for both the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years. The goal moving forward is to always have two school years ahead planned and approved. It is our hope that this will allow you and our community to better plan around events and plan for your own personal family activities. Both school calendars can be found on the school website (vanburenschools.org) and the "VB Eagles" mobile app.
