WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEATHER DELAY, A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DELAY AND THE MCAS DELAY?
*A weather delay is normally 1-2 hours. Due to the fact that breakfast is not served on delayed opening days, the bus will pick you up at your bus stop 1 hour 15 minutes or 2 hours 15 minutes later than the normal pick up time. For example, if you were picked up at 7:00 A.M. then for a one-hour delay the bus will be there at 8:15 A.M., for a two-hour delay the bus will be there at 9:15 A.M. Classes will begin at 8:45 A.M. or 9:45 A.M.
*On professional development delays, there is a 2 ¾ hour delay. For example, if the bus normally picks you up at 7:00 A.M., then the bus will pick you up at 9:45 A.M. Doors open at 10:05 A.M. and classes begin at 10:15 A.M.
The professional development delays for the 2015-2016 school year are as follows: December 9, 2015, January 20, 2016, March 9, 2016, and May 4, 2016
*On MCAS delayed opening days there is a 3 hour 10 minute delay. For example, if you are normally picked up at 7:00 A.M. the bus will pick you up @ 10:10 A.M., if you are normally picked up at 7:15 A.M. the bus will pick you up at 10:25 A.M. Doors open at 10:30 A.M. and classes begin at 10:40 A.M.
