Middle and high school bell schedules, late start days and first day of school

The start of the 2021-22 school year is right around the corner. Here is all the information you will need about bell schedules, late start days and the first day of school for middle and high school students.

Start and end times

This year, all SKPS schools will have a new bell schedule for the 2021-22 school year.

Middle school

Middle schools will start at 9:20 a.m. and end at 4 p.m., with the exception of Roberts Middle School which will start at 9:45 a.m. and end at 3:25 p.m.

High school

High school will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m., with the exception of the three locations below:

  • CTEC – 9 a.m. to 2:55 p.m.
  • Early College High School – 8:30 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.

Late start on Wednesdays

All SKPS schools will have a late start day on Wednesday. This means that the school start time will be one hour later than normal. Dismissal time will remain at the normal time.

A late start day allows school staff a regular time for collaboration and planning in order to better support our students.

All bus transportation pick-up times will also be shifted one hour late on Wednesdays, with limited exceptions. Exceptions to this will be contacted directly for bus stop time adjustments. Drop-off times for all buses will remain at the normal time.

  • 7th and 8th grade students will start on Sept 8., which happens to be a late start day.
