    Board Updates: Recess and Extended Day

    I am sure many of you have heard about new recess policy that was adopted at the Board Meeting last week. Basically it states that students will have 20 minutes of recess daily this 15-16 school year and next year students will receive 30 minutes of mandatory recess. Teachers are not allowed to use recess as a consequence for discipline issues. On days when you have indoor recess they have suggested some sort of movement activity, such as Go Noodle or other Brain Break.

    At our principal meeting Dr. Hinojosa also shared that due to the 30 minute mandatory recess the board was going to be extending the school day by 10 minutes. He said that those minute would likely be added to the end of our school day.

    If you have any questions we will have a few minutes at the beginning of the Monday Meeting to hear those.
