SCHEDULE FOR NEXT ACADEMIC YEAR - 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR!

Buena Vista Staff voted to go with a minimum day schedule every Wednesday of next academic year. We are joining all the other elementary schools in the district to take time as a school-level team to collaborate every Wednesday afternoon on how to best serve our students. We will ensure that every classroom has the same high quality of instruction as we collaborate, plan lessons and activities together, and hold each other accountable for what is best for all our students.


What does this mean for our parents and students?:


Regular Day School Schedule will be -

  • School will begin at 8:05 AM every day.
  • School will close at 2:15 PM every day.


Minimum day School Schedule will be -

  • School will begin at 8:05 AM every minimum day
  • School will end at 12:17 PM every minimum day.
  • We will have a minimum day every Wednesday of the academic year except the last week of school.
  • Our minimum day for the last week of school will be on the last day of school - Thursday, 06/04/2020.


Please stop by the office if you have any further questions on this matter. At Open house, on 5/23/19; and at all subsequent coffee with the principal, Dr. Kumi will be available to discuss any questions on this matter and other matters.
