Extended Day Info from Excel

Waterloo Elementary has sent home notice to parents about extending the school day by 1 hour.  This change starts February 17th, and will continue through April 4th.  Due to the extended day, the time spent with students enrolled in the Excel program will have less time with Excel staff.  
We will begin at 3:30 pm and end at 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. 

 All students must be signed out no later than 5:30 pm each evening.  

Students will still have a snack, a shortened recess and a shortened homework time.  Our grant requires participation in certain activities regardless of the school district extending the day into Excel time.  This means that on days that have additional activities, homework may need to be finished at home.  These activities include Junior Achievement, Purdue Extension Program, Physical Education and Library.  A weekly schedule is hanging outside the Excel room if you would like to plan accordingly for homework.

We thank everyone for their flexibility and cooperation as we work through these changes.
