Make Plans Now
The Board of Education approved three (3) delayed start days for the 2021-22 school year. The last delayed start date is Wednesday, April 6. Students will begin school two (2) hours later than normal. Students will need to arrive at school between 10:30-10:40 A.M. with the tardy bell at 10:45 A.M.
Students who ride the bus will simply add two hours to their normal pick up time. For example, if the normal pick-up time is 8:05 A.M., the pick-up time on September 22 would be 10:05 A.M. Teachers and support staff will report for duty at their normal time on April 6. Schools will utilize time with staff for needed training and professional development.
