Rowe School Meeting
April 25, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
New school hours that will take effect beginning in the 2017-2018 school year – we will modify our school schedule for scholars to the following:
– Doors will open for scholars at 8:15 am
– Instruction for scholars will begin at 8:30 am
– Dismissal will begin at 3:30 pm
Reflecting on our progress as well as myriad literature and research, we believe this decision will propel our performance as a school and further cement that we are on the path from Good to Great. One key trade-off that we will make to enable this evolution is eliminating early dismissal on Wednesday. The 8:15 am – 3:30 pm schedule for our scholars will be every day, Monday through Friday. Furthermore, we will also expand our School-Age Program to include before-school care to allow families who have to be at work prior to our official start time to have a safe and structured place for our children.
There is certainly more that I would like to share with you all about our thinking and the impact of this shift that cannot fit in this letter. To that end, we will have two opportunities over the coming weeks to elaborate further on our thinking and answer any questions our families may have. Please join us on either April 25th or April 28th from 4:30 – 5:30 pm in the Rowe Elementary School Auditorium.
