Extended Early Release
We hope all of our families are doing well, please know we as a learning organization understand the importance of working together with our families to provide for the needs of our students, particularly during these unprecedented days of COVID-19. Since the start of the 2020-2021 school year the district has adopted an early release schedule to allow teachers additional planning time to address face-to-face and online learning.
MISD will extend the early release schedule beginning Monday, September 21 and continue through October 16th, 2020.
A parent survey was sent to families on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. The survey results indicated there were concerns about the impact of an early release schedule on our working parents.
In an effort to address these concerns, campuses will provide extended care from 1:30-3:15 PM for students whose working parents are impacted by the early release schedule. The extended care hours will be provided by campus personnel through the duration of the early release schedule. Each campus administration will communicate with parents who wish to have their child(ren) participate in extended care hours.
IMPORTANT: The district will not be running additional bus routes for extended care hours, therefore parents must make arrangements for their student(s) to be picked-up by 3:15 PM at their child’s campus if they wish to have their child participate in extended care hours. There can be no exceptions to this requirement.
We consider it a great privilege to serve our families and hope everyone remains healthy and safe.
