APPLETON, Wis. — The Appleton School District has announced a plan for changes to the school schedule to make up for lost time due to weather delays and cancellations in January and February.

According to their website , here's a look at the new plan:

  • Appleton Community 4K- Only Head Start and 4-day a week partner locations will need to make up minutes of instruction. Families at these partner locations will receive additional information from the site director in the near future regarding the winter weather make up plan.
  • Starting Monday, March 4 and through the end of the year, the District will be adding 6 minutes to the end of the elementary school day. School dismissal for all elementary schools will be 3:22.
  • Starting Monday, March 4 and through the end of the year, the District will be adding 10 minutes to the start of the high school day AND 10 minutes to the end of the day. In total, 20 minutes will be added to the high school day.
  • At this time no changes need to be made to the middle school day.
  • Charter school families will receive specific site information from their principal concerning possible makeup minutes.

The contingency plan for any additional school cancellations or delays is as follows:

  • Should a 2-hour delay be needed, the District will cancel the monthly Late Start scheduled on May 8 for all District schools, and students will attend school for the entire day.
  • Should a full day of school be canceled, the District will cancel the monthly Late Start scheduled on May 8 AND extend June 7 to a full day of school for all District schools.
