From the HCPSS:
With the transition to hybrid instruction during spring 2021, school start and dismissal times were shifted by 20 minutes, to reflect the concurrent in-person and virtual learning environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the return to a normalized, fully in-person instructional program in fall 2021, and, with consideration for feedback provided by school staff and community stakeholders, the school bell schedule will return to the original, pre-COVID times for the 2021-2022 school year.
The 2021-2022 start and end times for each school are provided on the BoardDocs website. The HCPSS website and school websites will reflect 2021-2022 start times after the current school year concludes.
HCPSS plans to study start times and secondary scheduling options for the 2022-2023 school year, with special consideration for the possibility of a later high school start time, and will hire a consultant to conduct an extensive study to inform future planning.
