All High Schools in Northside utilize Staff Development Late Start meeting times to allow teachers to meet together and plan for instruction. 16 times during this school year, first period will begin at 9:05 a.m. instead of the usual 8:50 a.m. On Late Start Days the first bell will ring at 8:58 a.m. with a warning bell at 9:02. Buses will pick up students at the normal times, and once students arrive on campus, they should remain in the cafeteria, library or courtyard area where they will be supervised. The auditorium will be opened on days with inclement weather. Once students arrive on campus by bus, car, or parent, they should not leave campus again. Since all teachers are in planning meetings or supervising students during Late Starts, no tutoring or parent conferences will be scheduled during that time. Late Start Meetings for Staff Development will take place on the following days the 2018-19 school year: 9/5, 9/19, 10/3, 10/17, 11/7, 11/28, 12/12, 1/9, 1/23, 2/6, 2/20, 3/6, 3/20, 4/3, 4/17, and 5/15.
