School Start Times Initiative
Dear Pine-Richland Families:
During the 2019-2020 school year, Pine-Richland launched newly modified school start times at all levels. As a reminder, here is a list of the updated instructional times:
- 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:
- High School and Middle School: 7:30-7:40 a.m.
- Eden Hall Upper Elementary School: 8:15-8:30 a.m
- Primary Buildings (Hance, Richland & Wexford): 9:00-9:15 a.m.
- Morning Kindergarten (Hance, Richland, & Wexford): 9:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
- Afternoon Kindergarten (Hance, Richland, & Wexford): 12:50 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Please reach out to your child’s building secretaries or administrator(s) if you have any specific questions related to school start times.
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 created a School Start FAQ.
