To: Parents/Guardians 

From: Cindy Palmer, Principal, Roland Michener School

  Subject: 2020-2021 School Bell Times 

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

As communicated on May 15, the CBE is making adjustments to the start (entry) and end (dismissal) times of the school day at some CBE schools for the 2020-21 school year. We are making these plans for the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, however, the re-opening of schools is based on recommendations of the government. Re-entry plans have not been finalized. 

For the 2020-21 school year, our school hours will be:

Grades 1 - 5

Monday – Thursday Entry Time:  8:00 AM

Monday – Thursday Dismissal Time: 2:40 PM

Friday Entry Time:  8:00 AM

Friday DISMISSAL TIME 12:00 PM

Kindergarten A.M.

Monday – Friday ENTRY TIME - 8:00 AM

Monday – Friday DISMISSAL TIME – 10:50 AM

Lunch Time hours:  11:20 – 12:00 PM

School hours continue to be aligned at all schools that use transportation services to optimize transportation services. These changes are one part of the CBE’s efforts to develop equitable, sustainable, and coherent transportation service for all CBE students. 

We know that this change will have an impact on many families. By informing you before the end of this school year, we hope you are able to make the necessary adjustments to your routines and make any required childcare arrangements before the start of the 2020-21 school year. I would like to thank you for your patience and support. We look forward to a great year in learning together next year! 

 

Thank you, 

Cindy Palmer, Principal 

Roland Michener School
