|Dear PLES Half Day Kindergarten Parents,|
Effective immediately whenever district 38 calls a 2 hour delayed start half day kindergarten students will attend school. In an effort to provide more instructional time for our half day kindergarten students, we will be shifting half day kindergarten start and end times when there is a 2 hour delayed start due to inclement weather. When a delayed start is announced, half day kindergarten students will begin their day with all elementary students at 10:45 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m. If half day kindergarten students are bus-riders, they will continue to ride the bus in the morning as normal. On delayed start days, half day kindergarten students will end their day at 2:00 p.m. Lunch will not be provided, therefore, students will need to bring a substantial snack. Parents will need to pick up half day kindergarten students at 2:00 p.m. and provide transportation. This change does not affect full day kindergarten students. Full day kindergarten time will remain 10:45 a.m. till 3:45 p.m.
We hope this altered schedule will provide you with an option that works for your family.
