A change to the Early Childhood schedule

August 2020

Dear Early Childhood families,

I am excited to share that Gordon has decided to extend the school day for Early Childhood students on Fridays. Friday dismissal will be at 2pm, not 11:45am as it has been in years past. 

As Gordon’s Early Childhood program has evolved over the years, any benefit there was in an early Friday dismissal has become less important, and that benefit is certainly outweighed by Gordon’s desire to better “meet the needs of children and families living in our fast-paced and ever-changing world,” as described in our current strategic vision.

By keeping Early Childhood classes working and learning together until 2pm, Gordon is able to extend students’ classroom experience while better serving the practical needs of families and their children. It also brings them into sync with Gordon’s Lower School and Middle School students, who are also dismissed at 2pm on Fridays.

If you have any questions about this change, or other details about the year to come, please reach out to me any time.
