2021-2022 School Start and End Times

May 28th, 2021

With the transition to hybrid instruction during spring 2021, school start and dismissal times were shifted by 20 minutes, to reflect the concurrent in-person and virtual learning environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the return to a normalized, fully in-person instructional program in fall 2021, and, with consideration for feedback provided by school staff and community stakeholders, the school bell schedule will return to the original, pre-COVID times for the 2021-2022 school year.

The 2021-2022 start and end times for each school are provided on the BoardDocs website. The HCPSS website and school websites will reflect 2021-2022 start times after the current school year concludes.

HCPSS plans to study start times and secondary scheduling options for the 2022-2023 school year, with special consideration for the possibility of a later high school start time, and will hire a consultant to conduct an extensive study to inform future planning.
