Where are we now?

This fall (September 2019) we begin a three-year implementation of moving our middle schools to later start times. Cherokee Heights, Jefferson and Spring Harbor Middle Schools move to an 8:40 start time and Crestwood, Huegel, and Thoreau Elementary Schools move to an earlier start time of 7:50. All other elementary schools make a minor shift in their times. Select your school from the drop-down menu below to check your new start and dismissal times. (Reminder: Our Board approved changing start times at its July 30, 2018 meeting.)
