Update on Elementary School Schedules Effective September 2019

May 09, 2019

Over the past several months, the Richmond School District has undertaken a significant consultation process with stakeholders, staff and parent advisory groups to develop a set of elementary schedules that is consistent across the District. As a result, the District will be making adjustments to the schedules of all elementary schools starting September 2019.

The following schedule will be in place at all elementary schedules starting September 2019:

Start Time:8:45 AMM - F
Recess:To be determined at the school level
Lunch:12:00 - 12:52M - F
Dismissal:2:45 PMM - F

The benefits of making these changes include, but are not limited to, the District's ability to provide sufficient time within the lunch break for physical activity and nutrition; increase the accessibility of student support services; provide equity for all members of our educational community; increase opportunities for the effective assignment of staff; increase the ability to support schools when assigned staff are away; and support community partners in their ability to provide daycare and after school programming.

Elementary Principals will be communicating the 2019/20 school schedule to their school communities on Thursday May 9th.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement these changes.
