Longer Weekends Proposed For Peru Students

Posted by wlpo on February 3, 2012

Starting in August, Peru Elementary Schools will get a jump start on the weekend before neighboring students.

The district is taking public input on the idea of having early dismissal every Friday for the 2012-2013 school year.  Parkside Elementary will dismiss at 2, Washington School at 2:05 and Northview at 2:15 just like on Wednesday’s this school year.  The staggered dismissal times are an attempt to help parents pick up kids at the different schools.

Superintendent Mark Cross says the early dismissals create more time for administration and staff to work on their school improvement plan.  Cross says another advantage to Friday early dismissals is having Project Success four consecutive days instead of being broken up on Wednesday.
