Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, the District will implement a 90-minute early release on Wednesday afternoons to allow teachers time to collaborate and participate in professional development opportunities. Starting September 13, 2017, Bonny Slope will release at 1:35 p.m. every Wednesday.
The Early Release/Teacher Collaboration webpage includes an FAQ and an animated video in both English and Spanish. Please visit the webpage to learn more.
Facility Use on Early Release Wednesday’s in 2017/18
With the introduction of early release on Wednesday’s next school year, the Central Office has been receiving questions from parents and staff about the use of the school facilities on early release days.
After extensive discussion with Teaching and Learning leadership, Superintendent Grotting has determined that all schools will be closed to community use and rental during the Wednesday early release hours. This means no after school clubs will be available after school on Wednesdays at Bonny Slope, such as Mad Science & Young Rembrandts.
The exception to this closure decision will be to licensed after-school daycares under lease contracts with the District, such as Bonny Slope's Student Stop. The District currently has contracts with licensed after-school daycares at 19 elementary schools and these are anticipated to remain in effect.
