The District leadership and school leadership has been looking at how best to increase instructional hours at the elementary level. We worked with the Transportation Department to ensure that the transportation of students from both the elementary schools, and the middle and high schools would work.

Additionally, the elementary staff had asked to have professional learning communities, or staff collaboration time on Wednesdays as the middle school and high school did in the 2014-2015 school year. There have been many changes in education, and many things the state is asking of us that are new. Staff needs time to implement changes and learn new things. They need time to meet with educational assistants to plan for the students as well. Therefore, this has also necessitated schedule changes.

We are pushing the start of the middle school to a later time, and having them get out later as well. This is for two reasons: teen brains need to sleep in later in the morning and the transportation time issues.

Therefore the times for the elementary and middle schools beginning with the 2015-2016 school year are as follows:
Elementary School Hours:   Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday – 7:55 AM – 2:25 PM       Wednesday – 7:55 AM – 12:45 PM
Middle School Hours:   Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday – 8:45 AM – 3:04 PM       Wednesday – 8:45 AM – 1:25 PM
