Daily Schedule

The elementary schools use a rotation of letters A through D, beginning with the first day of school and continuing each day school is in session. This letter day rotation allows shared specialists such as the guidance counselor and speech therapist and related arts classes to be scheduled in an equitable manner.

Each family receives an ABC calendar at the beginning of the year. The lunch menus also reflect the letter days.
