    SCHOOL DAY

    The length of the school day at various levels, as well as the specific opening and closing times of the schools, will be recommended by the Superintendent and set by the Committee.

    The Superintendent is authorized to make minor changes in opening and closing times to simplify transportation scheduling; however, major changes in schedules will be subject to Committee approval.

    Daily schedules within each school shall be those established by the Principal and approved by the Superintendent.

    Parents and guardians will be informed of the opening and closing times set by the Committee. To help insure the safety of all children, parents will also be notified that students will not be admitted into the school building until 15 minutes prior to the start of the official day unless bus schedules require earlier admittance.
