Bell Schedule and Instructional Minutes

Kindergarten

Heather single grade kindergarten classes follow a slip session schedule, where the beginning and ending of the instructional day varies depending on their “Early Bird” or “Late Bird” assignment.

  1. Early Birds: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday, 8:25 am to 1:25 pm
  2. Late Birds: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday, 9:25 am to 2:25 pm
  3. Both Groups: Wednesday, 8:25 am to 12:25 pm or “8:25 Everybody Day”

The slip session allows for small group instruction, with approximately half the class for the first hour of the day, and then the second half the class the last hour of the day for literacy instruction. Early or Late sessions are determined first by looking at birth dates, with the younger students assigned to the 8:25 session and the older students assigned to the 9:25 session, and then balancing the classes with the students whose birth dates fall in the middle.

All kindergarten students assigned to a multiage class, either a K/1st or a K-2nd class start at 8:25 and are dismissed at the same time as the Early Birds at 1:25 pm.

NOTE:  Please watch for schedule changes from your child’s teacher for special events or activities.
