SIX DAY SCHEDULE

SIX DAY SCHEDULE

 
All of the elementary schools now use a six-day schedule rotation similar to the middle and high school schedules. The first day of school is Day 1 and subsequent days follow in a six-day cycle. This provides the opportunity to offer more equitable special class experiences for students whose assigned days used to fall on school closings, i.e., students who had art on Monday missed many art periods. It also permits us to use shared staff more efficiently, and enables us to provide instructional enhancements to our programs. 

These programs include Encore classes in grades two through five: art appreciation class for all second grade students; a research, technology, and study skills class for third grade students; and chorus as part of the instructional program for grades four and five students. 

Additionally, each class has a reserved time in the library technology area once per cycle. Kindergarten and first grade students have a more developmentally appropriate Physical Education and Music schedule consisting of three times per cycle for thirty minutes of physical education and two times per cycle of music.
