New School Hours for September 2019
Over the past several months, the Richmond School District has undertaken a significant consultation process with stakeholders, staff and parent advisory groups to develop a set of elementary schedules that is consistent across the District. As a result, the District will be making adjustments to the schedules of all elementary schools starting September 2019 and the bell schedule for our school will be modified.
The new hours will be:
School starts at 8:45 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m., every day of the week. Lunch will be from 12 noon to 12:52. All Richmond elementary schools will follow this same schedule.
The benefits of making these changes include, but are not limited to, the District’s ability to provide sufficient time within the lunch break for physical activity and nutrition; increase the accessibility of student support services; provide equity for all members of our educational community; increase opportunities for the effective assignment of staff; increase the ability to support schools when assigned staff are away; and support community partners in their ability to provide daycare and after school programming.
Please see the attached letter for full details. An email will be forthcoming from the Anderson office tomorrow.
For any questions, please contact Mme Marin, prinicipal of Anderson school. Thank you.
