The schedules issued on Wednesday and Thursday are no longer valid.According to Maypearl JHS Principal Lesley Austin, the school experienced a 12 percent growth rate in student enrollment during the past two weeks thus creating the need to add a seventh period."In order to keep class sizes lower and give students more opportunities for elective choice, we are going from a six-period schedule to a seven-period schedule," Austin wrote in a letter dated August 22."We are doing this without changing the start and end times to the school day."A school assembly will be held after students receive their new schedules."After the students receive their new schedule, we will have a school assembly starting at 7:50 a.m. to review the new seven-period schedule," Austin said.Additionally, the school is opening up a one week period for schedule changes. August 28 will be the final day to submit change requests and all change requests must be submitted through email or writing by a parent or guardian."If after reviewing the new schedule with your student you would like to requeset a schedule change, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or send a written request to the office," Austin said.
