  • Make-up time/days starting on Monday, March 4th
  • We will extend the school day by 20 minutes beginning on March 4th.  We will start school 10 minutes earlier and go 10 minutes later.  Bus routes will also begin 10 minutes earlier and end 10 minutes later which means your child will be picked up 10 minutes earlier and arrive home 10 minutes later. Here are what the new times would look like at each building:
    • Regular Day
      • Elementary-     8:10 am – 3:30 pm
        • AM preschool- 8:10 am – 11:15 am
        • PM preschool- 12:20 pm – 3:30 pm
      • Middle School- 8:05 am – 3:30 pm
      • High School- 8:00 am – 3:25 pm
    • Wednesday
      • Elementary-      8:10 am – 1:55 pm
        • AM Preschool- 8:1 am – 11:15 am
      • Middle School- 8:05 am – 1:55 pm
      • High School- 8:00 am – 1:44 pm
  • We will not have early outs on Wednesdays in the month of May only.
  • We will go to school on Friday, April 5th, but will run a Wednesday schedule 1:55 pm dismissal.
  • We will go to school on Monday, April 22nd.
  • We will go to school on Friday, May 31st and dismiss at 1:55 pm that day.
  • With all of the time that we are making up, seniors will be done with school as originally planned as long as they’ve met graduation requirements.

We feel that by implementing the above measures, we will be making up a majority of the time missed this year for school while meeting state requirements, and would make any time missed comparable to years past. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause your family, but we believe making this time up is in the best interest of our students. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
