Early Release Days

When do we have Early Release Days?
They are planned once a month on a Thursday. They are announced in the weekly Dragon Digest and are displayed on our school calendar. (If the word "tentative" is listed next to a date, please note confirmed dates will be listed in the newsletters as soon as possible.)

Why does school get out so early that day?
Miraloma School is using a plan that most districts are using all around the state in order to provide elementary school teachers with collaboration and planning time. Our past system of monthly grade level release requires the school to pay for 9 guest teachers/month. The system of monthly early release days will benefit all staff and students with less sub-time AND save the school $20,000/year!

Why should I even send my child to school that day?
We continue to utilize a school-wide community building and diversity awareness strategy called FAMILIES. All students will be part of their Miraloma Families and have activities that day. As there are only 6 students in each family, your child will be greatly missed if he or she is not there.

Please help us make this day a success by planning ahead for early pick-up, if possible. All after school programs will begin at 11:20 on early release day.

If you are not able to pick up your child early, please contact your teacher (or the principal) as soon as possible.
