HOPE – The schedule for “early out” days in the Hope Public Schools will be mixed for the remainder of the school year as a result of COVID-19 complications.
The Hope Academy of Public Service and Clinton Primary School will NOT observe “early out” days for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year, beginning Feb. 2. Students and faculty at HAPS and CPS will attend on campus for the entire day rather than dismiss early for the day.
The change stems from an extended “pivot” away from on campus instruction in January which pushed usable alternative days for both campuses to state-allowed limits.
“Early out” days for all other HPS campuses will be observed Feb. 2, March 2, and April 6.
