HSSD releases cancellations make-up plan
SUAMICO – Due to the resulting inclement weather related cancellations, the Howard-Suamico School District must make-up state required instructional minutes for students in grades 4K-12.
Different grade levels have different required instructional minutes as set by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Therefore, the following changes will be in effect for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year:
• Classes will be held all day for K-12 students Friday, Feb. 22 (formerly a K-12 half day).
• Classes will be held all day for K-12 students Friday, March 8 (formerly a K-12 early release day).
• Classes will be held all day for K-12 students Monday, April 22 (formerly a staff professional development day).
Beginning Monday, Feb. 25, the school day will be extended:
• Bay Port will extend 10 minutes to a 7:25 a.m.-2:45 p.m. school day (formerly 7:30 a.m.-2:40 p.m.).
• Bay View will extend 10 minutes to a 7:25 a.m.-2:45 p.m. school day (formerly 7:30 a.m.-2:40 p.m.).
• Elementary schools will extend 15 minutes to an 8:30 a.m.-3:25 p.m. school day (formerly 8:45 a.m- 3:25 p.m.).
• No changes to Lineville or 4K school day length.
Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 26, late starts at Bay View and Bay Port Tuesday mornings are cancelled and PLC meetings for staff at those buildings will be shortened accordingly.
Bay View and Bay Port students should report at 7:25 a.m. on the remaining Tuesdays beginning Feb. 26.
A plan for making up required 4K minutes is in development and will be communicated directly with 4K families and staff when complete.
Spring Break March 25-29 remains the same for all students and staff.
Also, Friday, April 19 and Monday, May 27 remain days off for all students and staff.
There are no changes with regard to the end-of-year schedule for seniors or the June 2 graduation ceremony.
Note these changes remedy the current instructional minute deficit.
However, any significant additional instructional time loss incurred yet this winter or spring will result in an update to this plan and could include extending the school year beyond the current last day of school, Thursday, June 6.
