New school start and end times for the 2019-2020 school year:
High School: 7:50 AM – 2:50 PM (currently 7:20 AM – 2:20 PM)

Throughout the 2018-2019 school year, there have been discussions about adjusting school start times at a number of Education Committee meetings and regular School Board meetings. The District carried out a survey to obtain feedback from current T/E parents, middle/high school students and staff members on the new 2019-2020 school start time option.

Between now and the start of the 2019-2020 school year, the District will be working on the adjustments needed for a smooth transition to the new start times. In the coming months, information about the new start times will be shared with parents through targeted communication from the schools and the District.
