School Start Times Initiative


  • Dear Pine-Richland Families: 

    Over the past few months, we have provided updates related to school start times through building-level and district-wide communications.  At times, we receive questions or comments related to these communications.  

    In response to the most frequently asked questions, and to provide our families and students with another resource related to our modified school start times, we have created a School Start FAQ.

    Beginning this fall, Pine-Richland has modified school start times at all levels. As a reminder, here is a list of the instructional times for the 2019 - 2020 school year:

    • High School and Middle School:  7:45 a.m. - 2:36 p.m.
    • Eden Hall Upper Elementary School:  8:35 a.m. - 3:10 p.m.
    • Primary Schools (Hance, Richland, & Wexford):  9:20 a.m. - 3:40 p.m.
    • Morning Kindergarten (Hance, Richland, & Wexford): 9:20 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    • Afternoon Kindergarten (Hance, Richland, & Wexford): 1:00 p.m. - 3:40 p.m.

    Drop off times for each of the buildings are as follows for the 2019-2020 school year.  All students are encouraged to use the district provided transportation (school bus).  School buses provide safe, efficient transportation to and from school for all students in grades 1-12 (Students in kindergarten are provided transportation to school (AM program) and home from school (PM program.)).

    • High School and Middle School: 7:30-7:40 a.m.
    • Eden Hall Upper Elementary School: 8:15-8:30 a.m
