|Academic calendar update

In response to student input, the academic year will begin before Labor Day (with Labor Day as a class day), allowing students a full week off at Thanksgiving in 2018. The 2019-20 academic calendar will continue with a weeklong break at Thanksgiving, but because of when Labor Day and Thanksgiving fall in 2019, it is possible to complete the number of academic days needed without starting school before Labor Day.
