Secondary Class Schedule Set for 2021-22

Secondary Class Schedule Set for 2021-22

After gathering feedback from counselors, teachers, students and families about two possible secondary class schedules (6-period day and 3-period A/B schedule), we have decided to move forward with the 6-period day for 2021-22.

Although there was positive feedback about both options, many students expressed a need to return to a familiar schedule after more than a year of disruption due to the pandemic.

One of the top-rated comments in the student Thoughtexchange was, "Having all six classes everyday (sic) would be better. Before Covid-19, having six classes was the normal and so we should just go back to the normal six classes."

The bell schedule for 2021-22 will be:

  • High school: Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Middle School: Monday-Thursday, 8:05 a.m.-2:35 p.m.
  • School will dismiss 90 minutes early on Fridays for teacher professional collaboration time (PCT.)
