School Start and End Time Update

School Start and End Time Update

UpdateDear LMES Families,

I hope you are having a great summer break! I wanted to share with you an important update regarding start and end times for the upcoming school year.

At the most recent school board meeting, school division leaders presented an update on the Return to Learn plan for the 2021–2022 school year, including the bell schedule. Laurel Meadow is one of three schools that will operate on a bell schedule of 8:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. this school year. Please note that this is a change from last year's schedule. Other elementary schools in the county will have an 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. schedule.

This shifted schedule is being done to help ensure our transportation service is as efficient as possible. Like many other school districts across the country, HCPS is in need of more bus drivers and this shortage affects all aspects of transportation service. This differentiation in schedules allows some of the school division’s existing bus drivers for other elementary schools to assist in picking up and dropping off our students.

We are cheerfully planning for the upcoming school year and can’t wait to see our students again soon. Have a great rest of the summer!
