Why are there so many late start and early dismissal days?

On Mondays, students begin class one hour later than the rest of the week. We use this time to meet as an educational community, conduct staff training, and attend to personnel needs. Twice a year we schedule early dismissal days to allow our teachers to begin parent-teacher conferences earlier in the day to accommodate parent and personal schedules. Other early dismissal days may occur prior to school holidays.
