Fall Virtual Learning Start and End Times

Thanks for your patience as we've worked out the details on when students and staff will start and end their virtual learning day. For the first quarter of the 2020-21 school year, all schools will follow this schedule:

Students
Elementary: 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Middle: 8:30 a.m. – 3:42 p.m.
High: 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Staff
Elementary: 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Middle: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
High: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. 

If and when we move to a hybrid or face-to-face model (possibly as early as November), these times will be adjusted to reflect the 2020-21 school start time plan. To plan for this possibility, please check your school's start and end times below since this could take effect as early as second quarter.
