ES Main Office Secretary
At Avon Elementary School we are dedicated to providing our students with outstanding opportunities for learning and growth. There is a strong commitment to constant improvement, and feedback from the community about how we are doing is vital to our success.
We are proud of the achievement of our students, yet we continue to strive for greater success. From Pre-Kindergarten through 4th Grade our students receive a level of quality in their education that is unmatched. Through the dedication of our staff, our hardworking students, and a high level of parent involvement we have had a tremendous record of accomplishment.
We have so much to be grateful for at our school; a marvelous record of success, a promising future, and magnificent students to work with each day makes Avon Elementary School an extraordinary place to be.
At the ES, the student day begins at 8:50 AM and ends at 3:15 PM and follows a four day rotation schedule.
In the event of a snow or conference day, the rotation continues where it left off
On parent conference days, the letter day repeats and an alternate schedule is created to meet with all classes between the two days
Other class schedules (remedial reading, remedial math lab, enrichment, speech, adaptive physical education, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling) that deal with individuals or small groups of children are set by the instructor; the instructor works closely with the classroom teachers to design schedules that are most beneficial to students and minimize the level of disruption to the classroom
The student lunch period is thirty minutes in length with an added five minutes if playground time is provided. Students are required to spend at least fifteen minutes eating their lunch, then they may go to the playground for the remaining twenty minutes. Student safety is on our mind at all times; especially during the winter months when the temperatures dip.
Every day we follow a protocol to determine whether or not playground time will be offered to students, and for what duration
Each morning we check for the latest information regarding temperature and wind speed for Avon, NY
We use this data collected from the internet, along with the National Weather Service Windchill Chart to render a decision as to whether or not playground will be offered to students
Depending on the weather factors, the playground will either be the usual twenty minutes long, fifteen minutes long, or cancelled altogether. The temperature, wind chill, and the decision to have playground time will be announced each morning to the students on the public address system. As we have done in the past, other weather factors may prompt cancelling the playground time (rain, wind, etc).
