Bell Schedules


Like all District 401 schools, Elm observes a regular bell schedule four days a week: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

On Wednesdays we observe a late-start bell schedule. Our late start allows our faculty to gather for staff meetings, training sessions and other professional activities.

We also observe a third bell schedule on assembly days, which may occur several times a year.
