Staggered start

All preschool and K-4 students will start on a staggered schedule. This has been done in the past for kindergarten and even K-2 schools, however, this year the staggered start will include grades 3 and 4.

Group A attends on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

Group B attends on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Group C attends on Thursday, Sept. 8.

Parent-teacher conferences will take place on Tuesday/Thursday evenings on Oct. 18 and 20 and March 7 and 9.

On those days, students will release 2-hours early.

PM Preschool will only dismiss 30 minutes early on parent-teacher conference days.
