PWCS has released the starting and ending bell times for all schools to take effect this Tuesday, Feb. 23 per the School Board’s plan.
Note: New starting times are for all students — virtual and in-person.
School day operation schedules will vary from school to school. Your child’s school will communicate directly specific daily scheduling information including period/blocks and lunch shift information. Look for an email from your school and check your school website frequently.
Important High School Schedule Information
Beginning Feb. 25 and Feb. 26, all ninth graders who requested in-person instruction will return to their schools. All other high school students who requested in-person instruction will return to their school on March 2 and March 3.
In order to facilitate this return to in-person instruction, it is necessary for all high school students, whether in-person or virtual, to begin their school day at 7:30 a.m. (or 7:25 a.m. for select high schools) starting February 23. This change in start time will remain in effect until the end of the school year.
Traditionally, high schools follow an odd/even schedule rotation throughout the year. However, due to the unique nature of this year’s schedule, high schools have adjusted their schedules to ensure Tuesday/Thursday and Wednesday/Friday in-person students will be able to see each of their teachers.
Tuesday/Wednesday are consecutive Even Days
Thursday/Friday are consecutive Odd Days
Please check your high school’s website for specific daily schedules including bell times for blocks/periods on Even and Odd days.
