Press release from Fort Wayne Community Schools:
One-hour delay for FWCS elementary schools on Dec. 9
Fort Wayne Community Schools’ elementary schools, with the exception of Bunche and Towles, will have a scheduled one-hour delay day Wednesday, Dec. 9. Buses will run one hour later than normally scheduled for grades k-5 with school beginning at 9:50 a.m.
Morning pre-k students will attend from 9:50-11:30 a.m., arriving one-hour late with grades k-5 and leaving at their normal time.
Breakfast will be served when students arrive, and after-school programs will operate on their regular schedules. Parents should check with their school for morning activity schedules on delay days.
The six planned delay days for the 2009-10 school year provide valuable professional development time for staff. Future delay days are scheduled for Jan. 27, Feb. 19, March 16 and May 12. If there is a two-hour weather delay, that supersedes the professional development one-hour delay.
