Families!


It is with great pleasure that I share our schedule will be changing this upcoming year! We came to this decision with your children in mind first and foremost. Four days a week we will be extending our school day from 2:40-3:05. This will allow us to extend all core classes so that they are 65 minutes of uninterrupted instruction giving students more time to master content and skills. Wednesdays will be slightly shorter for your children with a 1:20 dismissal. This opens up an opportunity for families to meet with teachers on Wednesday afternoons. It also creates a space for teacher professional learning. We assure you that these changes will not impact learning negatively. We believe this will serve your children even better. We also assure that after school activities (both through BWA and LeAp) will still be available for anyone who wants to participate. We hope you understand and support the changes we made to better serve our community. Should you have any questions or concerns you can email us or call the school. We will be having town halls to further discuss this the last week of August. Looking forward to a productive year.


Yours in partnership,

Principal Hasson
