Children may arrive at school at 8:20 am. Please do not send children to school before 8:20 a.m. or have them stay beyond dismissal. unless a staff member contacts you about a special event. Only under these circumstances are we able to provide adequate supervision before 8:20 a.m. and after 2:45 p.m. unless your child rides a bus. Walkers are dismissed at 2:45 p.m. and buses leave our school between 3:00 - 3:10 p.m. If you would like to use the school playground before or after school, please remember to supervise your children in this area while avoiding, blacktop arrival and dismissal areas.
Hagan utilizes a Block Scheduling System to allow for enhanced collaboration between teachers and other school staff. The schedule is formatted into a four-day cycle [i.e., A Day, B Day, C Day, and D Day]. If school is missed due to holidays or snow days, when your child returns to school, the schedule will resume with the letter day that was missed. For example, if Friday is a B Day, then Monday will be a C Day, if Monday is a holiday, Tuesday will become a C Day. A sign will be posted in the office letting the students know what day it is. Communications from your child’s teacher will facilitate accuracy with the schedule.
Blocking Scheduling also provides for more consistent participation by each class in the four specials offered at Hagan. These specials are art, music, physical education, and library. Each special is 40 minutes in length. Students will attend art, music and library one time per four-day rotation. Students will attend physical education two times per four-day rotation.
