Late-Start Wednesdays Begin August 18

Late-Start Wednesdays Begin August 18

Starting Wednesday, August 18

The first late-start Wednesday for the 2021-2022 school year will be on August 18. Students, staff, and faculty will start their normal school day at 8:35 a.m. instead of 7:50 a.m. This delayed start provides dedicated time for many more opportunities for professional development of faculty and staff, multi-grade level teacher collaboration, and parent or student-led Bible studies. This model is a proven best-practice, enabling ongoing teacher training, which leads to higher student achievement across all levels.

Students may be dropped off during late-start Wednesday morning carpool from 8:15-8:35 a.m. The official school day will begin with the morning devotion and announcements at 8:35 a.m. Bus route pick-up times will remain the same every day. If needed, parents may drop off students at 7:00 a.m. for early care or 7:20 a.m. for morning study hall sessions. Any students arriving on campus before 8:15 a.m. must attend these monitored early-care areas. Normal 7:50 a.m. start time will apply only on Wednesday, December 15 and May 25 due to testing. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation!
