Why the change?  Per Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 387.131, secondary students are required to have 330 minutes of daily instruction. This does not include passing time between classes, lunch, or announcements in the morning. Our current schedule for the 2015-2016 is not in compliance.

We replaced nutrition with Advisory time, which falls in line with the District. This Advisory time will be used to review the announcements, check grades, have a snack, and to also provide interventions for students.

Secondary students will be able to purchase a snack in the morning starting at 7:30am before the school day starts. Transportation will be working with our new school as well, and we will provide information for pick-up and drop-off times when that schedule is completed. We will post that on our website as soon as that becomes available.

The elementary school schedule will start and end at the same time as the secondary students. School starts at 8:00am and it will end at 2:45pm for elementary students as well. The elementary day schedule will remain the same with a morning recess/nutrition break. Students will also have an afternoon recess as well. Students will also have their specials.

The collaboration schedule and minimum day schedule will be completed soon so please stay tuned!

If you have any questions, please call the principal, Kathy Bomba-Edgerton.
