Adjusted Schedules to support Parent-Teacher Conferences

All elementary and middle school buses will have early dismissal during the weeks of November 15-19, 2021, and March 7-11, 2022, to support Parent-Teacher Conferences. The early dismissal will be based on the Wednesday schedule.

If, for example, a school has a 12:50 pm dismissal time on Wednesdays, during parent conference week the dismissal for Monday through Friday will be 12:50 pm.  All buses, GenEd and IEP, will adhere to the revised schedule for Parent-Teacher Conference week.

The following services will be canceled during the weeks of Parent-Teacher Conferences to accommodate this change in the bell schedule.

  • Elementary & middle school early releases
  • Elementary, middle, and high school Therapy services after 12:00 pm
  • All field trips using Zum buses
