When the district determines it is necessary to utilize a two-hour late start to a school day here are some tips to help you navigate the change in schedule.
Why a Late Start Instead of Cancelling School?
Oftentimes the roads just need a few hours of sunshine and warmer temperatures to become safer for students to travel to school.
With a two-hour late start all schedules are pushed to two hours later including:
Kids Club will be open at 7:00 AM for those families who are already signed up.
Please note that Early Childhood’s Acorn Patch classes are cancelled on late start days.
Before School Clubs & Activities
When the district has a two-hour late start, all before school clubs and activities are cancelled. This is for student and family safety so they are not traveling on unsafe roads or battling winter conditions.
A “Grab and Go” breakfast will be available at all school buildings. Students will pay for this the same way they normally pay for their meals. Lunches are served on the same schedule as a normal school day.
It is also important to know that on a late start day we dismiss at the same time as a regular day.
We know that a change in the school day can cause some disruption for families. The decision to make a schedule change is done with the safety of students in mind. We appreciate the support from the community as we all work together to navigate the ever-changing Missouri weather!
