Responding to Feedback on Daily Start Times

As mentioned previously, the school is considering changes to the daily schedule for the 2021-2022 academic year. The draft schedule proposed a shift from early dismissal Wednesdays to late arrival Mondays (with a new Early-Care program offered free of charge at both campuses on Monday mornings), and start times at both campuses that were 30 minutes later than pre-pandemic start times. While most parents/caregivers (over 80% at both campuses) said the proposed schedule could work for them, the most common issue raised among those that said it did not work was the need for an earlier drop off window.

For that reason, we have revised the proposed schedule to return to pre-pandemic start times (8:00am at the elementary campus and 8:30am at the middle campus), and kept the drop-off windows the same as they were before COVID-19 (7:30am – 8:00am at the elementary campus and 8:00am – 8:30am at the middle campus).

The Governing Board will vote on this proposed schedule at their next regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, June 21 at 6:30pm.
