Both Valdez High and Gilson Middle schools will begin a revised bell schedule Tuesday, September 8th, with the first class beginning at 8:10am.
At VHS, Breakfast Break is now scheduled after 2nd period. Jazz Band start time will not be affected. Class duration times will remain 47 minutes Monday through Thursday, and 37 minutes on Friday.
At GMS, students and staff will have seventeen minutes between 2nd and 3rd period including passing time. The gym will only be available to either the Gold/Blue groups on a rotating basis, keeping the number of students to a manageable level. Physical distancing can happen with extra teacher/staff support during breakfast break.
Schools will be flexible with tardies this week as students and families make adjustments.
