After receiving numerous calls about this years Monday schedule for students, Bonneville School District 93 Superintendent, Dr. Scott Woolstenhulme, sent the following letter to parents:
Dear D93 Families,
From the number of questions we’ve received this week, it sounds that we haven’t done a great job on communicating the schedule for Mondays this year. I apologize for any confusion and frustration this has caused.
On August 3rd, we sent a newsletter to families with back-to-school information that included a page about our Monday schedules. Today, we also posted a video to YouTube (https://youtu.be/2WGanlQoQRY) to provide more clarification about our schedule.
Here are the key things to know about Monday schedules:
Elementary students will not attend school on the 1st, 3rd, or 5th Mondays every month.
- These days will be used for elementary teachers to collaborate together to better support students.
7th - 12th grade students will attend school for half a day every Monday from 8:40 am - 12:15 pm.
- Monday mornings will be primarily used to provide students with extra time, help, and support.
- Lunch will be provided from 12:15 pm - 12:40 pm
- Buses will pick up students at regular times in the morning and will pick students up from school at 12:40 pm
Students may be excused from attending classes on Mondays by their teachers after the first few weeks of each trimester. These students will be provided with opportunities to extend their learning at home, but still may attend school if they wish to.
Teachers and schools should notify families by the Friday before if their students are excused from school on Monday.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. And, again, I apologize for any inconvenience and frustration that we’ve caused if we didn’t communicate this clearly before.
Dr. Scott Woolstenhulme
