Delayed Openings and Early Dismissals
Due to the "Staggered Schedules" for High School, Junior High, Intermediate, Elementary, Primary, and ECC, students start the morning and leave school in the afternoon at different times. Flour Bluff ISD AVOIDS delayed openings/early dismissals except in real emergencies.
When it comes to a delayed opening, it is very difficult to communicate the varied time schedules that come into play with the "staggered schedule" to the public, and coordinate the different time schedules with staff members.
With regards to an unexpected early dismissal, it is very difficult to get all of the bus drivers back to work on short notice. The District must also consider the after-school child care arrangements/adult supervision for younger students with working parents and/or guardians.
