Late-Start Wednesdays Begin This Week

Late-Start Wednesdays Begin This Week

Starting Wednesday, August 14

The first late-start Wednesday for the 2019-2020 school year will be  on August 14. Students, staff, and faculty will start their normal school day at 8:45 a.m. instead of 8:00 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. Chapel will still be held on Wednesdays and instructional time will be maximized. 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 8:20–8:45 a.m. The official school day will begin with the morning devotion and announcements at 8:45 a.m. Bus route pick-up times will remain the same every day. If needed, parents may drop off students at 7:30 a.m. for morning study hall sessions. Any students arriving on campus before 8:30 a.m. must attend the monitored early-care areas. Normal 8:00 a.m. start time will apply only on these Wednesdays due to testing: October 16, December 18, and May 20. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation!
