2021-2022 Early Release Day

2021-09-15 Early Release Day

Four times in the 2021-2022 school year, KPBSD school days will end ninety minutes early for students, in order for teachers and instructional support staff to collaborate.

Students will meet the minimum day requirement, leaving teachers with approximately ninety minutes of additional time to work on improvement strategies. The length of the school day on the following four days will be reduced by ninety minutes, for a total of six hours during the school year. On these early release dates, school will end ninety minutes (1.5 hours) earlier. Bus transportation will be adjusted by ninety minutes.

Pre-K: On early release days, the afternoon Pre-K classes are cancelled. Thank you for understanding.

We recognize families may need to make arrangements on the early release dates, and thank everyone for the willingness to help our KPBSD schools improve through these four early-release dates.

Please contact your school principal with questions.

Additional information:

  • Schools have further details based on school schedules
  • Transportation: our transportation contract is by the day and allows us to modify the time and number of routes. Thus, the change will not cause an increase in transportation costs, and time is simply adjusted by the 1.5 hours
  • PreK Note: on early release days, all afternoon PreK sessions are cancelled. Morning PreK sessions do occur. Thank you for your understanding
  • The school calendar clearly notes the minimum days so you can plan accordingly
  • The school district will review the efficiency and effectiveness of the early release opportunities mid-year and at the end of year
