School Year 2017-18 School Start Times
Starting in the 2017-18 school year, early-start schools will switch to late-start schools and late-start schools will switch to early-start schools. There will be no changes to middle and high school bell schedules.
The school start time changes will begin in the 2017-18 school year and are per Board Policy 6112, which states that elementary schools (this includes K-8 schools) shall be rotated between an early-start schedule and a late-start schedule once every five years.
The new start time for our school will be 8:15am. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays students will dismiss at 2:55pm. On Wednesdays, students will dismiss at 12:25pm. Our half-day Kindergarten programs will attend from 8:15am - 11:35am for AM, and from 11:35am - 2:55pm for PM.
Once again these changes will take place in the 2017-18 school year. We are informing you now so families have plenty of time to plan for the new start times.

The 8 Keys were developed by Quantum Learning, a research-based educational organization working to enhance student behavior and teacher excellence.
