2017-2018 Calendar and Bell Schedule Adjustments
Effective August 2017, the following adjustments will be made to beginning and ending times for students. These changes will allow the District to adjust bus routes to accommodate the opening of new schools and to meet Division 22 instructional time standards. If you don't see your school listed, there are no changes.
Middle Schools 9:15 a.m. – 3:50 p.m.: Start and end times will be adjusted 10 minutes later for Cedar Park, Conestoga, Five Oaks, Highland Park, Meadow Park, Mountain View, Stoller and Whitford. This change reflects the actual times buses are currently able to arrive at dismissal time given existing traffic patterns. The change to 3:50 will improve afternoon bus arrival times.
Options Schools 7:30 a.m. – 2:05 p.m.: This change for ACMA, ISB, HS2, SST, Merlo and Rachel Carson allows high school programs to meet Division 22 standards for instructional time. This earlier start time will not result in earlier pickup times for students at bus stops and, in some cases, may allow for later pick up time with modifications to bus routes.
Sato Elementary 8:30 a.m. – 3:05 p.m.: The District's 34th elementary school will open in September 2017.
Hazeldale Elementary 9:20 a.m. – 3:55 p.m.: This adjustment is for one year only while students are located at Timberland during new school construction.
Vose Elementary 8:00 a.m. – 2:35 p.m.: Upon return to their new school, Vose students will return to their previous schedule.
Scholls Heights Elementary 8:30 a.m. – 3:05 p.m.: The school will move from being an early start elementary school to a late start elementary school to accommodate schedules for new bus routes to Mountainside High School.
Mountainside High School 7:45 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.: The District's sixth comprehensive high will open in September 2017.
District-wide Early Release: Every Wednesday, beginning September 13, 2017, all students will be released 90 minutes early so teachers can collaborate and engage in professional development.
