New Middle School Start/End Times for 2016-17
New Middle School Start/End Times for 2016-17
Posted on 07/26/2016

Starting this fall Friendly Hills and Heritage will begin their school days at 8:45 a.m. and end their days at 3:20 p.m. 

This shift will make the start and end times five minutes later for Friendly Hills and ten minutes later for Heritage than in previous years.

The change in start/end times is being made to align both schools’ schedules and to better accommodate transportation.  The additional minutes will help eliminate wait times for students transferring buses at the middle schools and allow more students to participate in the schools’ breakfast programs.

No elementary or high school start or end times will change this year.

With the new start time, each school’s main doors will now be open at 8:30 a.m., unless a student is enrolled in the School Age Care (SAC) before-school program or involved in a supervised club or activity. All other students should not be dropped off before 8:30 a.m.
