New Alternating Modified Block Schedule for 2020-2021

East High students and families,
 
UPDATE: As of today, East High will be implementing an alternating modified block schedule this school year. Your student's 1st semester schedule will no longer be based on quarters. East High students will NOW have alternating Blue and White days during the semester. For example:
 
Semester 1:
 
Blue Day: Hours 1, 2, and 3 will be 93-minute class periods, and 7th hour will be 47 minutes long. Ace Time and lunch will take place between 2nd and 3rd hours.
 
White Day: Hours 4, 5, 6 will be 93-minute class periods, while 7th hour will be 47 minutes long. Ace Time and lunch will take place between 4th and 5th hours.
 
Semester 2:
 
The schedule will look exactly the same as above.
 
We will still have two lunches. First lunch will consist of the West complex, B Building, Center classrooms, and the Gymnasium. Second lunch will include the East complex and Science wing. And a Zero Hour will still function like a 7th hour course.
 
We want to be very clear that students who participate in MySchool Remote will have the same contact time expectations as on-site students. MySchool Remote students will be expected to logon during the same time their on-site peers will be in class and will have the same alternating modified block schedule as on-site students. In short, a MySchool Remote student schedule will occur at the same time as on-site students.
 
This change will still reduce person-to-person contact and promote student safety. More importantly, students will not have a lapse in content.
 
Student schedules are still being updated as a result of face-to-face and MySchool Remote needs. Schedule information will be distributed later in the month.
 
Attached is the updated East High 2020-2021 bell schedule.
