Poudre School District Students Could Be Heading to School Later for the 2015-2016 School Year
We all know that when school starts in August, there are those chances of the school day being a hot one when temperatures outside rise to near 90 degrees or more. When schools don't have proper air conditioning to make the day more comfortable, it can make the day less enjoyable for both teachers and students alike. Well the Poudre School District could be doing something about that coming up next school year.
The proposed change would have high schoolers start school two days later, while middle and elementary schools in the district wouldn't have their first day until a week later than the norm. The new school calendar would look like this:
August 20th: Start of High School
August 24th: Start of Middle and Elementary School
December 21st: Start of Winter Break
End of May: Last Day of School
If you'd like to be part of the discussion concerning the possibility of a new school calendar, the topic will be discussed by the Board of Education at it's meeting on January 13th.
Heat days will also be an option that will be at the discretion of the district if and when the temperatures will rise with a 48 hour notice.
