Mondays are early release days to provide for teacher training. School will start at 7:50AM and release 90 minutes early at 12:50PM. Buses will run their same PM routes but will drop students at stops 90 minutes earlier than the Tuesday-Friday schedule.
We know this time for teacher training is a gift from the community, and we thank you for it. Teachers do a great amount of work on their own, but without dedicated time to meet, learn, and work together, practices can become disjointed form one class to the next and teachers don't have time to share and learn from one another and from others with greater expertise in specific areas. Teachers have tried to do this "on the fly" in past years, but this Monday training time focused directly on district and building improvement goals is essential to create a system of greater consistency, clear goals for all students, a rigorous and aligned curriculum, and a system to measure student achievement and growth.
