|The schedule for Kindergarten is the same on regular days and on Wednesdays. Students in Grades 1-5 have a 20-minute morning recess. All students in Grades 1-5 have a minimum of 120 minutes of physical education every week. TK and K students have a daily 30-minute combined recess/PE period under the supervision of their teachers. All students have a 45-minute lunch and noon recess period, evenly divided between lunch and playtime. Check your child’s class schedule for exact times.
SMMUSD designates a few days each year as Minimum Days for students. These usually occur at the beginning or end of the year, the day of Back to School or Open House nights, and during Parent Conferences. On these days children in TK-5th Grades are dismissed earlier than usual. Minimum days for the school year can be found on the Important Dates calendar.
Wednesday Schedule Banked Time Days
All SMMUSD schools have one Banked Time day each week so teachers can participate in on-going professional development. A few minutes are added to each day to off-set the fact that students are dismissed earlier or arrive later one day per week. At Edison, Banked Time days are Wednesday afternoons. Having time to meet together as a professional learning community, to plan and reflect on instruction, and to learn new skills helps your school provide a rigorous and high quality program for students. Please do not forget to adjust your schedule for an earlier pick up on Wednesdays for the following grades: 1:35 pm (1st and 2nd grades), 1:45 pm (for Preschool), or 1:50 pm (for3rd, 4th, and 5th grades). The TK and K schedule remains the same and ends at 1:35 pm on Wednesdays.
