School Start Time Community Meeting on Tuesday, May 15

During the 2016-2017 school year, the School Start/End Time Review Committee determined that more conversation was needed about changing school start and end times at the elementary and secondary levels. The committee reconvened in February to find out more about the impact of school start and end time changes on elementary students, transportation, and activities and athletics. ISD 199 community members are invited to learn more about the start time conversation at a community meeting on May 15 at 5:30 PM in the Simley High School Spartan Center. For more information, research, and updates, please visit the Start Time Review webpage,

Choir for Change will be meeting this Thursday the 10th in Mr. Findlay’s room WA219 after school. Hope to see you there!
