Changes Coming to Next Year’s Bell Schedule
May 31, 2017
The School Based Management board met yesterday and voted to make several changes to the school bell schedule for the 2017-2018 school year. Morning announcements will be moved to the end of Period 2. The announcements will begin with a call for Breakfast in Classroom ambassadors to leave to pick up their class’ breakfast. Period 1 instruction will now begin at 7:50 a.m., ten minutes earlier than this year due to the announcement change. All periods will be one minute longer, with Period 2 being extended an extra four minutes to accommodate the announcements. The changes are being made in an attempt to discourage students from being tardy to school. Many students believe that first period actually begins after the morning announcements.
