• New Start/Dismissal Times for 2019-2020 School Year

          The start and dismissal times for some of our schools will change for the 2019-2020 school year.

          The changes to the start/end times will address certain concerns expressed by parents and staff and on what would be best for Normandy students and families.

    • Having high school students start at the later time of 8:45 a.m. is supported by research showing benefits of a later start time on the adolescent brain and on student learning. In addition, some staff felt that the later start time may help improve student attendance at the high school. The principal discussed this change with the athletic director and carefully weighed the decision before proceeding, concluding that any challenges could be effectively managed.
    • Staff have expressed the desire for shared time for EleMiddle students in the middle grades for athletic team events, arts enrichment such as honors orchestra, and intramurals. With all EleMiddle schools starting at the same time, this opportunity for inter-school enrichment is now available.

         If you have questions about the adjusted start/dismissal times, please contact your child’s building principal. 

         Please note: The first day of school for Normandy students for the 2019-2020 school year is Monday, August 19.
