Bell Schedule 2019-20

Kindergarten

For the 2019-20 school year, AUSD kindergartens will be returning to a shortened (rather than extended) day schedule. This is due to two reasons:

1) The Board of Education took measures last spring to reduce expenditures to find money to improve employee salaries

2) Kindergarten teachers had indicated that a shorter day was emotionally, socially, academically, and physically better for their students.

For the 2019-20 school year, our kindergartners will be on an "A/B" schedule.

Note: Kindergarteners will be released at 11:40 am from August 19 through September 6, 2019.

A/B schedules begin after this period. Families will learn in which group their child has been placed during those first three weeks. School sites will try to accommodate parent/guardian work and childcare schedules to the best of their abilities and coordinate with on-site aftercare providers.

On Monday and Tuesday, half of the class (the “A Group”) will stay until 1:40 pm, and the other half (“B Group”) will go home. On Thursday and Friday, the “B Group” will stay until 1:40 pm, while the “A Group” will be dismissed at 12:40 pm.  

Both groups will be released at 12:40 pm on Wednesdays.
