Dear Middle and Upper School Parents,
In the time since Palm Valley reopened for the 2020-2021 school year, we have made the observation that the current bell schedule has presented some unforeseen challenges for both our teachers and students. Due to these challenges, we will be implementing a newly designed bell schedule beginning Monday, November 2. This schedule was created in collaboration with Palm Valley teachers, in order to better serve our students’ academic and social needs.
As you will notice, we have reinstated a Block time for Wednesdays and Thursdays and removed Advisory on Mondays and Tuesdays so that we are able to release students at 3:30 Monday - Thursday. Friday continues to be modified and shortened for an early release at 2:40 for staff professional development.
We appreciate your flexibility in these challenging times, and we thank you for your patience. Please contact either Mrs. Mulé or Dr. McLachlan with any questions or concerns.
You will find the new schedule here. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
Dr. McLachlan and Mrs. Mulé
