District News

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.
