Where are we now?

In the fall of 2019 we began a three-year implementation of moving our middle schools to later start times. Our first phase of Middle and Elementary Schools made shifts to their start and release times this school year. All other elementary schools made a minor shift in their times. The 2020-21 school year will begin phase 2 of this process affecting Hamilton, Toki and Wright Middle Schools moving to an 8:40 start time and Midvale, Lincoln, Chavez and Olson Elementary Schools moving to an earlier start time of 7:50. 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.)
