During 2nd Semester our schools will be implementing a two-hour early release day every month. The first one is January 13. Each of the four early release days (see schedule below) will fall on a Wednesday. There will be no early release day in May.
On each of the early release days, students will be released two hours early. The bell times, including the early release times for each school, can be found here.
The early release days, which were implemented for the first time last school year, provide teachers with an opportunity to complete professional development and experience training that will help increase effective instruction and ultimately will benefit students.
Students who are registered in the district’s PLACE program will be able to stay the extra two hours with no additional charges. School buses will operate two hours earlier during early release days. The routes and bus stops will not change.
The early release days are as follows. All are on Wednesdays:
Dear Staff, Parents and Families,
This holiday season gives us an opportunity to pause on our busy lives and reflect on our blessings this school year. This has certainly been an interesting year. I have witnessed our Connerton staff community come together as a true community family to celebrate and support each other, never losing sight of our purpose… the children. The staff has worked selflessly to bring hope and joy to their classrooms while still maintaining social distancing and wearing masks. The impact you have made on the lives of so many has been truly touching.
I have witnessed families, business partners and PTA coming together to support each other and our school. I appreciate all you have done and will continue to do in the new year. Together we will be stronger. You all continue to amaze me with the commitment you have for our children.
I hope you all have a very special holiday season with plenty of time to relax and enjoy family and friendships. Please be safe and well. We will see you in the new year!
