2 Hour Delay Schedule

Just in case....

Students arrive at 10:50. There are no morning announcements and we do not have recess. Specials begin at 11:00. Kindergarten will release at 2:30 as normal.

Just a reminder that preschool does not delay since it is fee based and parents drive them to school. Besides BAC traffic, there will be preschool traffic between 9:05-9:25 at the preschool entrances.

Lunch times are as follows:

  • 11:30-12:00 First Grade and Kindergarten (Williams/Cravens/Fremion) in café
  • 12:05-12:35 2nd Grade and Kindergarten (Dunn/Sorgen) in café & Preschool in project room
  • 12:45-1:15 Third and Fourth Grade
    • Clark and Beiermann will need to eat in the project room. An additional adult will supervise this group in the project room. We will also set up additional tables in the café as needed. There will not be any assigned seats this day.

Goodwill Clothing Drive

Cleaning your closet and planning to make a visit to Goodwill sometime this month?

Please read this!

Be sure to tell the attendant to count your clothing donation for the Zionsville Educational Services Center. For every 13-gallon bag of clothing donated, the ESC will receive a $5 Goodwill clothing voucher to distribute to families in need, so that they can shop for free. Vouchers earned will go to ZCS guidance departments.

Reminder: This is for clothing donations only. You can donate other items, but only the clothing will count toward our total.

Please feel free to pass this along to family and friends! You can take clothing to ANY Goodwill and tell them it is for the Zionsville Educational Services Center.

Ready, set…. clean your closet!
