Change in Start Time at Powers Elementary
The new start time at Powers Elementary School will be moving from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. for next school year. Dismissal time will remain at 3:30 p.m. The primary reason for this change is to increase instructional time at Powers. This will bring the student day to seven hours as it currently is in the other four buildings in the district. The student day in first grade, second grade, and full-day kindergarten will be 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Walkers and car riders will be dismissed at 3:20 p.m. and bus riders will be dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Half-day kindergarten and preschool hours will be 8:30 - 11:15 a.m. for the AM session and 12:45 - 3:30 p.m. for the PM session. Students may be dropped off in the morning beginning at 8:10 a.m. and at 12:35 p.m. for afternoon sessions.
