School Day Schedules for 2016-17
Each Monday morning during the school year, all high school teachers from the three Millard high schools will meet in course teams called Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). These Monday morning meetings take place for one hour from
7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
Due to PLCs each Monday, classes for students will begin at 8:45 a.m. instead of 8:00 a.m. School doors will open at the
usual time, providing students who choose, or need to arrive at school earlier access to computers, the Information Center,
and the Guidance Center to meet with counselors. Students will be able to purchase breakfast and meet with friends before classes begin at 8:45 a.m. Monday mornings. The bell will ring at 8:38 a.m. each Monday morning, signaling students
to proceed to their 1st period classes
Tuesday through Friday of each week, classes will begin at 8:00 a.m. School will dismiss each day, Monday through
Friday, at 3:15 p.m. Zero hour classes meet Tuesday through Friday, and 8th hour classes meet Monday through Friday.
Millard North High School will be using two different bell schedules throughout the school year, one for Monday, with the
late start at 8:45 a.m. and Mustang Time advisement between 5th and 6th periods, and one for Tuesday through Friday,
with school beginning at 8:00 a.m. The two bell schedules are found on our website. Again, school will be dismissed at
3:15 p.m. each day of the week.
As stated earlier, teachers will meet in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) first thing each Monday morning to
improve achievement and learning for all students at Millard North High School. Millard North’s goal is to create a high
performing learning culture focusing on results, consistent improvement, and collaboration.
Teachers are the key component to accomplishing improved student learning. They need time, support, and data to
achieve this goal. PLCs help set high expectations for student learning and build systems of support to address students’
needs in a timely fashion. Through the collaborative efforts of teachers working and learning together in PLCs, student
learning and achievement will continue to improve.
