Stonington — The Board of Education approved a 2013-14 school calendar Thursday that calls for school to open Aug. 28 and end June 11, 2104, with make-up days June 12 through June 26.
The calendar retains the April vacation and a four-day President's Day weekend.
The board chose the calendar from three options, including one that would not start school until after Labor Day.
The calendar also aligns with the regional calendar, which is designed to help local school systems save money on transportation and staff training.
