Important Reminder Regarding the Elementary Schedule

Please note the following important reminder regarding the elementary schedule:

  • Students will follow a 5-day cycle, particularly for specialist classes (Art, Music, Library, Phys. Ed.)
  • It is important to know which day of the cycle we are on versus which day of the week it is
  • Instead of your student having a specialist class on a specific day of the week, such as Wednesday, your child may have that specialist on Day 3
  • The day of the cycle will be included in the morning announcements each day and is posted on each school website; teachers will also continue to remind students of the schedule.
