NEW SCHOOL HOURS FOR GES

As you know, the Giddings Independent School District and Giddings Elementary School were were closed on Monday, April 18th due to bad weather. As a result that day will have to be made up in order to meet the 75,600 minutes of instruction mandated by the state. According to the GISD School Calendar, Memorial Day would no londer be a school holiday, as school would be in session on that day.

The district has come up with an alternative solution. Beginning Monday, April 25, 2016, Giddings Elementary School will be changing its school hours. The new school hours will be from 7:55 a.m. - 3:10 p.m. This will allow us to meet the 75,600 minutes of instruction mandated by the state and keep Memorial Day as a holiday.

We understand this may cause some inconvenience as we begin implementation. Students will still be dismissed in the same manner just at a slightly later time. This might also slightly delay the afternoon bus schedule. However, with patience, flexibility and understanding we hope to make this transition as smooth as possible.

Thank you for your continued support!
