Modified Kindergarten Schedule
A “Modified Kindergarten” schedule will be used when situations, such as inclement weather, force a delayed start to school. “Modified Kindergarten” will be used in the event of a 2-hour delay. Using a “Modified Kindergarten” schedule permits the district to balance more evenly the instruction provided for both AM and PM Kindergarten sessions, while also responding to the state required attendance regulations. Also, please note that while the AM Kindergarten session time spills into the traditional lunch hour in our “Modified” schedule, AM Kindergarten students will not be served lunch in school. It is anticipated that AM Kindergarten students will have eaten before they arrive at school at 10:30 AM on “Modified Kindergarten” days.

Please refer to the chart below to understand the details of a 2 Hour Delay “Modified Kindergarten” schedule:
