Parents, if your child is a student in the Seattle Public School District your kids' school day just got longer by 20 minutes starting this fall.  Schools will also have a 75-minute early release every Wednesday EXCEPT Sept 6, the first day of school. 

For a complete list of school start and end times, visit www.seattleschools.org.

 

The change allows the district to eliminate the latest or third tier of school start and end times, which has, according to the district been a hardship on many families.

The final two-tier 2017-18 bell schedule reflects changes that address possible loss of high school instructional time, maintains the current school start times for many elementary and K-8 schools, and eliminates the third tier ensuring that all students begin school by 9 a.m.
