Rogers H.S. goes back to school early | Community Spirit
While most area high schoolers start class in a week, Rogers is getting a jump start.
Students at Rogers start tomorrow (Wednesday, August 28th). Why? Well, Rogers won a federal grant to improve its graduation rate and academics, which required the school to add 100 hours to its schedule. The administration decided to start the year early and add 30 minutes to each day. The school day goes from 7:45 am until 2:45 pm.
Don't feel too sorry for the Pirates.. they'll go to school on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, then are off Friday and Labor Day Monday.
