This year's school start time
Any plans to reconsider the later school start time? We find it a challenge to get to work on time especially when elementary drop off isn't until 8:10 and our daughter's bus doesn't arrive any earlier then that and sometimes later. Prefer the previous start and release times!

RE:This year's school start time
At this point in time there has been no conversation to alter the starting times for next year. The times were changed to start the high school 15 minutes later. The bus schedule requires us to move all the starting times later as a result of the high school starting later.
