It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! On the first day of school this year, it was announced that 75 minutes would be added to the school week district wide. Now, the schedule for the 2017-2018 school year and onward has been released after much speculation. The most notable differences are:
- First bell rings 5 minutes earlier.
- Tuesday and Thursday are the only days to have homeroom.
- Tuesday and Thursday also end 10 minutes later than Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

On the bright side, current Scarsdale high school seniors are grateful that they will graduate before the new schedule is enacted. Our best wishes go out to the current juniors, sophomores, and freshmen!
