if you haven’t already heard, the Board of Education (BOE) is proposing to change the start times of the schools in our county. In a nutshell, there are four proposed models, besides the current one being used. Each one proposes that elementary school and high school switch start times. Please check out the following link to make yourself more informed of what is being planned: ws-posts/2016/11/board-considers-school-start-dismissal-time-adjust ment-proposals/.

There is a public hearing Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. – the same day as our monthly PTA meeting. However, you’re encouraged to attend the hearing and let your voice be heard on school start times. You are able to testify at this meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, the BOE is also accepting official testimony regarding school start times by email to boe@hcpss.org.
