Benson schools to close earlier starting Monday Nov. 4

Lead Summary

The following letter was posted on the school's facebook page this morning, Wednesday, Oct. 23:
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Dear Parents/Guardians,
This letter is to inform you that there will be a change in daily school schedules beginning on Monday, November 4, 2013. Part of the new Master Agreement approved at the October 21 School Board meeting is that the student day will end 15 minutes earlier each day. The agreement puts the length of the student day in Benson more in line with area schools. As a result, students at Northside Elementary and Benson Elementary will be released at 2:55 and students in grades 7-12 will be released at 3:01. All students who ride a school bus or city bus after school will be arriving at their destination 15 minutes earlier than they currently do.
Once again, beginning on Monday, November 4, students will be released from school 15 minutes earlier each day than the current schedule. Note that morning bus times and school starting times will not change. Thank you for making accommodations for the change in schedule. Contact your child’s school if you have a question about the change in schedule – Northside Elementary (K-4) 842-2717, Secondary School (5-12) 843-2710.
