New Bell Schedule Beginning October 15th

Dear parents/guardians: 

With each school year, we find that there are opportunities to improve our daily operations.  This year is no exception.  As our current schedule stands, many students and parents have voiced their concerns about students not having enough time to eat lunch, particularly during Lunch B.  Additionally, our Wednesday schedule, as it currently stands, has a varied amount of minutes per class to adjust for our Period 4 - Tutorial/Lunch, which is confusing to both students and parents. 

 With this in mind, we have made some changes to the lunch and bell schedules, which will go into effect on October 15th, 2018, which will be the first day back from the Fall Break Recess.  Below you will find our new bell schedules.

We will continue to have special schedules when we have extended testing and assemblies.  Please note your child’s schedule Period 4 - Tutorial.  Tutorial is the block of time that includes lunch, academic assistance and interventions in classrooms, as well as lunch recess.  Please note the times for Period 4.  If you need to pick up your child during these times, allow additional time for us to get your child to the main office as they can be in multiple locations.  If you can assist us by avoiding appointments, etc. during this time, it would be appreciated. 

 

With the state wide focus on increasing instruction in the classrooms and increasing student performance, we ask that you assist us with your child being on time for the beginning of classes at 9:00 a.m. and avoiding picking up students less than 20 minutes prior to the 4:00 p.m. dismissal (2:30 on Wednesdays).  We know everyone will have special occurrences with appointments, etc., but we appreciate your help as we continue to increase the effectiveness of Palo Verde Middle School.

 

Thank you, 

Betty Paterson                                                                     James Richardson

Principal                                                                               Assistant Principal


 

Estimados padres/guardianes: 

En cada año escolar, encontramos que hay oportunidades para mejorar nuestras operaciones diarias. Este año no es la excepción. Según nuestro horario actual, muchos estudiantes y padres han expresado sus preocupaciones respecto a que los estudiantes no tienen suficiente tiempo para almorzar, particularmente durante el Almuerzo B. Además, nuestro horario de los miércoles, tal como está actualmente, tiene una cantidad variada de minutos por clase para ajustar para nuestro Período 4 - Tutorial/Almuerzo, que es confuso tanto para los estudiantes como para los padres. 

Con esto en mente, hemos realizado algunos cambios en los horarios de almuerzos y timbres, que entrarán en vigencia el 15 de octubre de 2018, que será el primer día de regreso del Receso de Vacaciones de Otoño. A continuación, encontrará nuestros nuevos horarios de timbres.

Continuaremos teniendo horarios especiales cuando tengamos evaluaciones prolongadas y asambleas. Tengan en cuenta el horario del Período 4 - Tutorial de sus hijos. El tutorial es el bloque de tiempo que incluye almuerzo, ayuda académica e intervenciones en los salones de clase, así como el recreo del almuerzo. Favor de tener en cuenta los horarios del Período 4. Si necesitan recoger a sus hijos durante estos horarios, Permítannos un tiempo adicional para llevar a sus hijos a la oficina principal, ya que pueden estar en varios lugares. Si pueden ayudarnos evitando citas, etc. durante este tiempo, lo agradeceríamos.

 

Con el enfoque a nivel estatal en aumentar la enseñanza en los salones de clase y aumentar el desempeño estudiantil, les pedimos que nos ayuden a que sus hijos lleguen puntuales para el comienzo de las clases a las 9:00 a.m. y eviten recoger a los estudiantes menos de 20 minutos antes del despido de las 4:00 (2:30 los miércoles). Sabemos que todos tendrán eventos especiales con citas, etc., pero agradecemos su ayuda a medida que continuamos aumentando la efectividad de la Escuela Intermedia Palo Verde.

 Gracias,
