The approved 2013-14 school calendar for Buffalo Public Schools extends the school year by one week, but adds a winter break in the third week of February.

It also schedules spring break to the week before Easter, instead of the week after because of the timing of state testing dates. The calendar was approved by the school board at its last regular meeting.

The first day of school will begin Sept. 5, the Thursday after Labor Day and end on June 26, 2014. To see a complete copy of the school calendar and related school board notes, visit the School Zone blog at www.buffalonews.com
