Please see information below on the various bell schedules observed during the school year.
Late Start Days
Independence High School will observe a 45 minute late start on most Mondays and some Tuesdays throughout the school year. During this time, faculty and staff participate in Professional Learning Communities sharing expertise and working collaboratively to improve teaching skills and the academic performance of students.
Students who arrive at the regular time will be given the opportunity to choose from several supervised activities until the school day begins. School buses will operate on their regular schedule on Late Start days.
Please note that exceptions usually take place before or after long breaks or holidays.
