Board Approves New School Start Times for 2023-24 School Year

The Lindbergh Schools Board of Education has approved new school day hours for the 2023-24 school year that support more instructional time in the morning for elementary students, reduce traffic and improve safety on the high school campus by eliminating middle school shuttles, and add five minutes of morning time for secondary students who ride the bus. These changes were recommended by the School Start Times Task Force in response to feedback from parents, staff and students.

2023-24 School Start Times

  • Elementary school: 8:45 a.m. - 3:35 p.m.

  • Middle school: 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.

  • High school: 7:45 a.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Over the last few years, the district has researched and implemented new school start and end times to better meet the developmental and learning needs of students. A summary of the task force’s work and recommendation was discussed at the January Board of Education Workshop.

While Lindbergh Early Childhood Education’s hours of operation will not change, they are reviewing options surrounding instructional time to reduce congestion on the high school campus. More information will be available at a later date.

Parent Group Meeting Please attend our next meeting if you would like to learn more about grading practices at the high school. Please see below.

Respect Neighboring Property Students, please be respectful of all property in and around our neighborhood. When property owners put up fencing around their property, that is a sign that you should stay off of their property. Even if they don’t, you should not be cutting through the yards or driveways of other individuals. You risk citation for trespassing by the local police.

Dropping Off Food at the Commons Parents, please do not drop off food to students at the Commons. It makes it difficult for us to maintain safety when we have students leaving and trying to reenter doors that are supposed to remain locked during the day. Any student or item dropped off during the school day MUST go through our attendance office.
