Pomona Middle School will Have Longer Days

The East Ramapo School District will be increasing the length of the school day at Pomona Middle School this coming fall by two hours. The district was one of nine districts in New York to be awarded a $2.6 million Extended Learning Time grant from local nonprofit Wellcore to lengthen the learning period everyday, adding a ninth period in the day for academic instruction and a tenth for recreational programs. Now, instead of the final bell ringing at 3:14 in the afternoon it will go off at 5:21 in the evening. The middle school will hold an information session on August 13 for staff at 10:00 AM and parents at 7:00 PM, and will be sending letters home with information for students and parents. Earlier this year the school was awarded a $500,000 grant from the state Education Department that will provide students in need with eye exams, dental cleanings, and other services for low cost.
