Mod Block and Delayed Start Commence
As promised last year, we began the school year using only the typical 50-minute period schedule for grades 6-12. Now, it is time to commence with the weekly mod block that was rolled out last year. Beginning September 2nd, your grades 6-12 students will follow the mod block schedule (see mod block schedule grid on the KHS web page or in your email) every Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of the year.
It is important to note that Thursdays will be delayed start days. This means that if a parent is willing to provide their own transportation, any student in grades 6-12 does not have to arrive at school until 8:45 or so with class (block period 2) beginning at 8:57. Teachers will still report at usual times for professional development meetings those mornings. Students who come to school at the usual time are to report to the cafeteria, where, like last year, they will be directed to study and collaborate on school work, projects and independent reading activities.The mod block Wed-Thur schedule will be reviewed with your students again at the beginning of the week, prior to it commencing on Wednesday. Please look the attachment over and talk to your child Monday night. If questions still exist, please call your principal so things can be clarified. Again, t is important ot note that if your child plans on taking advantage of delayed start Thursdays, transportation is the responsibility of the parent. Otherwise, buses will run usual routes and times.
