Early start for all All 1st-3rd graders 8:15AM-2:05PM
8/13/2018, 8:15 AM 2:05 PM

For the 2018/2019 school year, all Pleasanton Unified School District’s 1st-3rd-grade students will participate in an early start schedule during the first three weeks of the school year. This early start schedule will provide teachers time to assess all students without the loss of instructional time. As a result of these assessments, all students will have the opportunity to receive differentiated small group instruction based on data-driven assessments. While we can all agree that differentiated instruction is a benefit to our children, we know that the shift in scheduling will be a concern for some parents. Please be assured that we are mindful of this, and doing our best to take everyone’s needs into account.

For the first three weeks of school (August 13th – August 31st), all 1st- 3rd grade students will attend school following the “early start” time schedule (8:15 – 2:05), with the exception of Wednesdays when all 1st-3rd grade students will attend from (9:15AM-2: 50 PM).

If your child attends a staggered schedule school you will have time during the third week of school to make scheduling arrangements. The regular day schedule will begin on Tuesday, September 4th.

If you have questions or concerns related to the early start schedule, please contact your child’s teacher, the school principal, or the Curriculum Department at (925) 426-4328. We appreciate your support as we work together to help every child succeed.
