District Communication


Dear Parents:

As we continue to recover from the effects of Hurricane Irma, one of the common concerns we have heard is the loss of instructional time for our students. Our district submitted a variety of waivers to the state following the hurricane and one of those requested the waiving of the required number of instructional hours for our 4th and 5th grade students in the lowest 300 schools. We received notice that the state denied this waiver, however, the denial of the waiver allows us to add instructional time to our daily schedule for the benefit of student learning. A plan was developed in order to avoid changing the length of the school year and to minimally impact the established transportation schedules.

This letter is to inform you that San Carlos Park Elementary has been provided an opportunity to have extra time for academic instruction. Breakfast will continue to be provided for ALL students.

The extended instructional days will begin on January 8, 2018.

New School Time:

                Start Time:         7:25 a.m.

                End Time:            2:43 p.m.

We are very fortunate to be able to extend the instructional time required within the existing school schedule and look forward to the additional learning times for students.

If you have any questions please call the school office.
