Family input on the school day arrival and dismissal time, and morning program. 
Good afternoon,  the leadership team at the Paul School would like your input on the start and end time of school as well as your interest in participating in a morning program.  We are recommending that the school day begin at 8:45 (with students able to arrive at 8:30)  and the day to end at 3:15.  The purpose in making this change is to allow our transportation team to have the appropriate time between high school transportation and Paul School transportation to allow for our students at the Paul School to be dropped off at school and picked up from school at the correct time.  With our school hours as 8:30 - 3:00 last year,  many of our students arrived late to school,  and had to rush through breakfast to get to their classes as quickly as possible.  In the afternoon,  the busses who provide high school transportation arrived between 3:30 - 3:50,   requiring extra supervision after school to wait for their bus to arrive,  and students arriving home at a much later time.  Understanding that this change in time could impact parents work schedule,  we are also looking into a partnership  with the YMCA to develop a morning program to provide structured supervision for those students who needed to be at school earlier than the bus arrival time.  The morning program would run from 7:30 - 8:30,  and during that time,  students would have the opportunity to have their breakfast without rushing.  The morning program would include an opportunity for students who need extra time to get school work done,  but also have other sorts of activities available for students.  The morning program will be grant funding and have no expense this year to parents.  We would assess the success of a morning program throughout the year to determine planning for future years.  If you could reply to this short survey as soon as possible,  it will help me make an appropriate recommendation based on families' wishes at the next school board meeting which will be held at 6:00 pm on Tuesday,  August 22, 2023.  Thank you very much for your input,  we appreciate it greatly.
