New 2020-2021 Schedules Work Wherever You Are

The elegance of the SLSReady Schedules lies in their simplicity, consistency, and agility. These schedules provide a foundation for an exceptional academic experience and remain in effect whether we’re fully on campus, online, or doing a bit of both.

In developing these schedules, we took into account feedback from students, parents, and teachers about the strengths and limitations of this past spring’s distance learning schedule, specifically the need to create a schedule that creates a consistent experience for students that works in any scenario.

Additionally, the team that built the schedules (led by Director of Studies Jim Yavenditti) worked to ensure that non-class times don’t become too dense or prevent safe distancing. These times include lunch, passing time between classes, and breaks.

New Schedules Walk-Through

Combined with extensive faculty training, these schedules deliver consistency while enabling students to thrive no matter what guidelines we have to follow to preserve the health and safety of the St. Luke’s community. Best of all—it’s easy to follow and remember.

Note: The first period of the day will always begin at 9:00am. This maximizes schedule consistency for students. It also means a staggered drop-off (to reduce driveway traffic) will not be “built in” to the schedule. Faculty and staff are on campus by 7:45am every day, and—as always—students can come to school early if they’d like and if that makes it easier for parents.

If arriving early, Middle School students are asked to head to the Dining Commons, Upper School students to the MS Gym, and Seniors may go to the Cafe. If students arrive after 8:45am, they should go directly to their first-period class.
