Middle School Schedule and Cohorts

Arrival/Dismissal

Middle School students will enter through assigned Middle School, cafeteria, and Main Gym doors. For dismissal, all Middle School students will remain in classrooms until notified by SchoolPass that their cars have arrived, at which time they will exit through the Middle School carpool doors.

Schedule 

  • Students arrive between 7:30 – 8:00 a.m. and depart at 3:30 p.m. Academic instruction begins at 8:00 a.m.
  • Students will follow an A-B day block schedule with longer class periods to leverage in-person time with teachers and to reduce the number of transitions in a school day. Learning will be structured as weekly modules, meaning assigned work will take place over the course of a week rather than only on days when a class meets. Students’ schedules will be in effect regardless of where learning takes place – on campus or at home.
  • Students will eat lunch in classrooms with their advisories. Weather permitting, advisories will rotate through outdoor recess areas (e.g., field, playground) throughout the week.

Cohorts

There will be four advisories per grade level; to begin the school year, we plan for students to attend most of their classes with the advisory. Two advisories per grade level will form a cohort to enable the re-grouping of students for instruction in classes such as world language. If we find it to be in students’ best interest, we will revise cohort groupings in January.
