WHS Delay Schedule (10/30/17)

Today’s schedule (10/30/17) is:

Homeroom (9:40-9:44)

1st Period (9:48-10:38)

3rd Period (10:42-11:32)

5th Period (11:36-1:16) *lunch

7th Period (1:20-2:10)

As a reminder, for this school year when we have a weather related two-hour delay on a Monday, we will rotate between a Tuesday and a Wednesday delay schedule throughout the school year.  We will send this out via email to staff and Twitter to students/parents once the decision has been made.

Please note that this means there is no Flex on the Tuesday delay schedule or SSP on the Wednesday delay schedule.  We are rotating the days so that it will balance out in the end, but if there is an issue that causes certain class periods to not meet more frequently due to multiple cancellations in a week, we will make adjustments accordingly and notify students and staff.

I hope everyone was able to stay safe throughout the storm last night and as always please let me know if you have any questions.
