According to a note sent home to Noble parents, Superintendent Frank Solomon says the district has eliminated the last week of school, May 16-24. Solomon says the school will need to cut approximately $892,000 from its budget for the 2016-2017 school year.

Solomon estimates the school will save between $7,000 and $10,000 by cutting the last week of school.
