• 02-22-17 - Last Late Start Monday Reminder

    This is a reminder that there will be school on Monday, February 27th for all students.  It is a Monday Morning Late start, so schools will start at the following times:

    • Elementary Schools - 8:40AM
    • Middle Schools - 9:25 AM
    • High School - 9:20 AM

    This is the last Monday Late Start for the remainder of the school year.  This is so that students can make up some of the missed instructional time because of the weather-related school closures and delays.

    Este es un recordatorio de que habrá escuela el lunes 27 de febrero para todos los estudiantes. Es un lunes de Comienzo Tarde, así que las escuelas comenzarán en los siguientes horarios:

    • Escuelas Primarias - 8:40AM
    • Escuelas Secundarias - 9:25 AM
    • Preparatoria - 9:20 AM

    Este es el último lunes de Comienzo Tarde por el resto del año escolar. Esto es para que los estudiantes puedan compensar parte del tiempo de instrucción perdido debido a los cierres y retrasos de la escuela relacionados con el clima.
