|ARCHIVE: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 2022-23 BELL SCHEDULE
What is the “flex” period?
Why can’t we move first period to the end of the day and make it optional?
Do we have to take all 7 periods and if not can I choose which period I don’t have a class?
Students will be given the option to request periods 1-6, periods 2-7, or periods 1-7. Our guidance counselors will do their best to accommodate student preferences, but depending on course availability, students may not get their preferred choice. Students will only be given 7 classes by request.
A survey will be sent home with the annual course request letters in mid April. Please be on the lookout for that letter!
How will a late release impact co-curricular activities?
Athletic practices will begin approximately 15-20 minutes after the last bell rings. Depending on the sport, athletic contests will begin at 4pm at the earliest, but start times for some athletic contests may vary. Student athletes will be pulled out of class at approximately 2:00-2:15pm for most away games.
Band practices will be pushed 30 minutes later from 6:00-9:00pm. (Tues. & Thurs. Only)
Theatre Rehearsals will begin @15 min after the end of the day.
Why do students need to see all of their teachers on Wednesdays (“C” day)?
The inclusion of the “C-day” schedule enables students to meet with their teachers consistently three times every week. Having the “C-day” also ensures that our “A” and “B” days are on the same days every week. Currently, the rotating “A” and “B” day schedules each week creates a lot of confusion for students.
For these reasons, the “C-day” schedule on Wednesdays will be shortened to 50 minutes per period so that students can attend all of the classes on their schedules.
