    Wednesday Early Release Day
    All SMMUSD schools have one Banked Time day each week, so teachers can participate in ongoing professional development. A few minutes are added to each day to offset the fact that students are dismissed earlier or arrive later, one day per week. At Edison, Banked Time days are Wednesday afternoons. Having time to meet together as a professional learning community, plan and reflect on instruction, and learn new skills helps your school provide a rigorous and high-quality program for students. Please do not forget to adjust your schedule for an earlier pick up on Wednesdays for the following grades: 1:35 pm (1st and 2nd grades), 1:15 pm (for Preschool), or 1:50 pm ( for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades). The TK and K schedule remains the same and ends at 1:15 pm on Wednesdays.
