Late Start Wednesdays


One additional change occurring this school year is a shift to a late start Wednesdays. This will replace our early release Mondays from previous years. The reason for Late Start Wednesdays is to provide an extra hour of sleep for students mid-week, improve alignment with after-school sports and activities, and allow staff to engage in professional development training in the morning. 

On Wednesdays, all schedules will start one hour later. Your child’s school will be sending communication with specific start times and bell schedules. 


Bell Schedule

Students should not arrive before 8:30 a.m. each morning because there is no supervision available before then. Students will be allowed to walk on the walking path until 8:45.

The first bell rings at 8:50 a.m., and school begins at 9:00 a.m. Students not in class by 9:00 a.m. are considered tardy should be escorted into the office and signed in by a parent.

Dismissal is at 3:20 p.m. Monday through Friday.  If you have any questions, you may contact the office at 360.279.5100.
