Has the school time changed for your child's school this year?

Last year, the elementary school went from 7:45-3:00. This year the time has changed to 8:25-3:30. The new time change will change our morning routine, somewhat for the better but somewhat for the worse. So, I was wondering if anyone else's school changed the time this year and how you think it will work out for you and your family.

  • Locally, the times haven't changed, but the school calandar changed several years ago. Kids now start a good two weeks earlier than they did when I was a kid.

  • Not this year. It changed last year. Then, it was modified at the end of the year to make up for a snow day that they didn't even need to take, what with no snow and all. They still had to make it up. So, so stupid.

  • we have one going into middle school so she has a diffeent time . Our school board did change then changed it back because of all the parents that complained just as I was getting use to the new time.
