6-Plus Schedule

Participation in 6 “PLUS” time is encouraged for our EPS middle school students.  “PLUS” time will be held Monday-Friday from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

-- Receive extra help or structured time to study.

-- Complete homework with guidance.

-- Explore activities that would have not been traditionally offered in the middle school schedule.

-- Become civically involved and demonstrate leadership with community partners and guest speakers.

-- Participate in intramural activities that enhance fundamental skills and build upon sportsmanship.

-- Minimize the amount of time students have to exhaust on homework at home, maximizing family time and other evening activities.



Q: What electives will be a part of the 6 hour day?

A: Band, Chorus, Art, and Technology will be embedded into the school day.  Other electives, depending on student course request, may be offered from 2:30-3:30.


Q: Will students be offered transportation home at 3:30 following their “plus” hour?

A: Yes, as long as the student lives where bus transportation is provided. 


Q: When will middle school students serving detention or in school placement be dismissed?

A: In School Placement (ISP) will operate from 8:00 am-3:20pm. Detention will operate from 2:30-3:20. Students serving after school detention or ISP must be picked up by parent.


Q: How will I enroll my student in a “PLUS” hour?

A. Parent consent form will be available the first week of school.  This form will include whether a student will be participating, what days of the week they will attend, and outline what communication will be provided by parent in the case a student will not be in attendance.  This form will also outline expectations for “PLUS” time.  “PLUS” time will not start until the first full week of school.


Q: If my child participates in athletics, will they be transported to their practice site at 2:30?

A: Yes. 7th and 8th students enrolled in athletics will be transported to their practice site.  Students must be picked up by their parents following practice.


Q: If my child only participates in one sport, will my child be eligible for the “PLUS hour during the off season?

A: Yes.  Your child will be able to participate in the many offerings from 2:30-3:30.  There will also be some intramural sports clubs depending on the availability of facilities and weather.


Q: Will the “PLUS” time be the only opportunity my child can receive extra help?

A: No. “PLUS” time does not take the place of built in-interventions in your child’s 6-hour schedule.
