South Washington County parents bristle at proposed school start, end time changes


If the plan to approve new school start and end times is approved by the District 833 School Board Thursday night, some parents are not going to be happy about it.

The board is considering changing start and end times in elementary schools and starting middle schools 10 minutes earlier to save money and balance the transportation budget. Elementary time changes and those of non-public schools would vary from five to 50 minutes.
