Change to Day 1 Schedule

In preparation for the start of the 2019-2020 school year, we carefully reviewed our schedule to ensure we are utilizing time throughout the school day in the most efficient way possible. I am writing today to inform you and our students of a minor adjustment to the Day 1 bell schedule that will go into effect for this school year. 

The change will move the 15 minutes which was devoted to Homeroom, to the first short PRT, rather than taking time from the classroom. Weekly PA announcements will now take place at the conclusion of Period 1, at 8:55 a.m. This change is aimed at making better use of the time and personnel that have previously been devoted to the Day 1 homerooms. This gives us a slightly longer PRT on Day 1, which we believe will be useful for students and faculty in a number of ways, and Period 3 will now meet for 40 minutes on Day 1, just like the rest of the periods. There will no longer be separate homerooms assigned to students or teachers.

The new schedule can be found here.

We hope your student finds this adjustment helpful, and we ask for patience as our students and faculty navigate this change during the first few days back on campus.

We hope your family had a wonderful summer break, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to campus tomorrow. 

Please note: The Brebeuf Jesuit app has an update available for download with the updated schedule.
