CMIT School Start Times

This petition had 77 supporters

The below hours were announced during the summer, in the last newsletter sent out to parents. I'm perplexed as to why more input was not solicited from more parents. The messages acknowledged that there would be "some difficulty." In reality this change dramatically increases the burden on many families, especially those who have children in more than one CMIT school and those with work schedules that cannot accommodate the new start times. I urge CLF to come up with a better solution for the families of their students who hope to remain at CMIT. 

"High School
7:50am - Student Arrival and Drop Off
2:45pm - Student Dismissal and Pick Up

Middle School
8:05am - Student Arrival and Drop Off
2:55pm - Student Dismissal and Pick Up

Elementary School
7:35 am - Student Arrival and Drop Off
2:25 pm - Student Dismissal and Pick Up

These changes were made after consulting with the other CMIT North schools, the CMIT North PTO, and the Chesapeake Lighthouse Foundation. The new schedule will best allow parents, buses, and carpools to drop off students at all school locations without the concern of tardiness. Due to the opening of the new high school the staggered start times were necessary. We understand that the change may cause some difficulties for some families, however, this schedule meets the needs of the majority of stakeholders."
