Knox extended school days

Knox Elementary has one extra calamity day than the other schools in the district.  We had a day off in November because of a power outage.  Because of this, Knox needs to make that extra day up.  We will be extending our school days an extra half hour in the morning.  This will start on Monday, April 7th and go through Thursday, April 24th.  Buses will be picking up the children approximately 10 to 12 minutes earlier in the mornings.  If you drop your child off in the morning, the drop off time will be between 8:15-8:30 a.m.  We will still offer breakfast in the morning during this time.  Your child will be tardy if they get here after 8:30 a.m.  The end of the school day will NOT change.  If you have any questions please feel free to call Mrs. Mabbott at Knox Elementary or Sherri Malloy at the bus garage.
