  • Codified Ordinance 531.05 addresses that compulsory school age children are mandated to be in attendance at school and cannot be on the streets or sidewalks between 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on a school day. If a child has a late start or early release school schedule he/she may only be on the streets during the restricted hours if she/he is directly in route to or from school. Any minor violating this ordinance is subject to arrest and appearance in Juvenile Court. Any parent or guardian of a minor violating this ordinance may be issued a citation that will require an appearance in Garfield Heights Municipal Court.

  • I'd want my child under twelve in by nine anyway, unless I was thre. No reason for kids to be running around outside by themselves after dark.

  • Depends on where they are, what they are doing, and who is supervising. But our general rule is 9 pm for my 12 yo.
