Our Year-Round School
Middle Creek Elementary is a Year Round School. Students attending our school still attend school for 180 days, just like students on the traditional calendar. Multi-track year-round schools organize students into four groups or "tracks". Each track follows a different schedule. The schedules are staffered so that at any given time, three of the tracks are in school and one track is out on break. This system is a "45/15 Schedule" meaning the students in school for 45 days then off for 15, throughout the year. Families can use track-out time for vacation or track-out can be used for additional learning. Child care providers in our community offer child care during track-out. The school year begins in early July for students on tracks 1,2, and 3. Students on track 4 begin the school year 15 days later.
