Rethinking School Start Times – Message from Principal Dunn

Dear Wolcott Families:

As you know, for the past year and a half, the West Hartford Board of Education has been studying the benefits and challenges of changing the start and end times of our schools. On November 20, 2018, the Board will hold a vote on this issue. After reviewing four options, the Board has narrowed their decision to two options.

Change School Start Times (Board of Education Option 2)
High School starts/ends 40 minutes later
Middle School starts/ends 20 minutes earlier
Elementary School starts/ends 10 minutes later

M, T, R, F W
High Schools 8:10-2:55 8:10-1:30
Middle Schools 7:40 – 2:30 7:40-1:10
Elementary Schools 8:45 – 3:30 8:45-2:10

No Change to School Start Times (Board of Education Option 4)
Retain the current school start/end times for all schools.

M, T, R, F W
High Schools 7:30-2:15 7:30-12:48
Middle Schools 8:00-2:50 8:00-1:30
Elementary Schools 8:35-3:20 8:35-2:00

We will be in communication with you once we know the outcome of this vote.

Thank you for our partnership,
Scott
