New School Start Times for 2021-22 School Year

The changes in the bell schedule are to coincide with the opening of Summerwind Trails School in the fall, and the realignment of our elementary and middle school boundaries that was approved in December 2020.
Communication regarding this change was sent to parents in February on ParentSquare. 
The changes in the bell schedule at the middle schools and high schools reflect the implementation of Senate Bill 328, which requires middle school students to start after 8:00 a.m. and high school students to start after 8:30 a.m. Although the bill takes effect in the fall of 2022, we wanted to make the change effective for the 2021-22 school year.
A thorough analysis was conducted on city-wide traffic flow, transportation routes, and the new senate bill in order to determine the new schedule.
