School Day Extended, New MRHS Bell Schedule Announced
To make up missed days, the traditional calendar had three days still available. Each of the make up days previously identified in our calendar will be used. February 17th, March 7th, and April 21st are all now regular days of school.
In order to make up the missed instructional time on the remaining day(s), additional time will be added to the regular school day.
Beginning March 3rd, 11 minutes will be added to the school day. This will occur for 60 school days for schools on the traditional calendar schools. Because of the availability of a fourth make up day for schools on the Year Round Calendar and Early College, the day will be extended at those schools for 30 school days.
The last day with this extended time will be June 2, 2014 for schools on the Traditional Calendar. Individual schools will announce any resulting changes to their daily bell schedules within the school day. Buses will run their afternoon routes eleven minutes later than normal and dismissal will occur eleven minutes later than it has.Full Story
