For those interested in the 45-15 schedule, this innovative schedule uses the same number of days as the rest of the district but disperses them more evenly throughout the year. All “days off” for the rest of the district have been built into our schedule including the longer winter and spring breaks. Between quarters (intersessions), students will be able to register for optional afternoon care through the Boys and Girls Club.

  • same number of school days (just spread out more evenly)
  • all of the breaks for the rest of the district align with ours
  • during our 15 day breaks (intersessions), Intersession (which is similar to summer school) will be available when the rest of the district is in session
  • increased student achievement by providing timely intersession help

Programs Available During the School Day:


  • Early Childhood
  • 4 Year Old Preschool
  • Boys & Girls Club Program On Site After the School Day for kindergarten through 2nd Grade
  • Boys & Girls Club Program Off Site After the School Day for 3rd to 5th Grade
