Dufur School would like parent feedback on the MyDay Friday schedule that was piloted this spring. The purpose of the MyDay Friday schedule was to keep two full-day Fridays of school per month with extension opportunities for students throughout the day such as field trips, artists in residence, and career exploration. The MyDay Friday schedule also eliminated early release Wednesdays, replacing them with one full-day of staff development per month, with childcare provided to parents who signed their students up. Finally, one Friday per month (barring there were no holidays with the exception of Memorial Day) was reserved as a mental health day, with both students and staff having the day off.
