Schedule in K-8 Schools

We have had a lot of questions about the schedule for 6th through 8th grade students at K-8 schools. Here are some clarifications:

  • K-5th grade will follow the elementary schedule, and 6th-8th grade will follow the middle school schedule. (You can see the PPS example middle school schedule here.)
  • That means, all 6th-8th grade students should have all their classes remotely in the morning, and can attend hybrid in-person instruction in the afternoon during the “asynchronous” time. 
  • At a K-8 school, the timing of the afternoon in-person session for middle school students should match the timing for the K-5 afternoon in-person session, so that students in all grades can access transportation together.
