New Bell Times for Fall 2022

In the fall of 2022, most schools in our district will change their bell times. Extensive research shows that later start times improve middle and high school students' academic, health, and safety outcomes. Many districts across the State have adopted later secondary school start times. 

The district surveyed staff, students, and families regarding their thoughts about this change. Of the 1,264 respondents, 80% indicated it is important,  somewhat important, or were neutral regarding the move to start times later for middle and high school students. The Port Angeles School District Board of Directors reviewed survey responses and approved adopting this change during the May 27th, 2022, Board Meeting.

Adopting the later start time for secondary will require all of our district's elementary schools to align their start times with those already at Dry Creek and Roosevelt due to limited busses and transportation staffing. The new bus routes and times will be available in mid-to-late August. We will post this information on our website and share it with families by email.

Plans are to implement the new school start and end times when school starts in September 2022. Please find your student's bell time listed below by school. Note, Wednesdays will continue to be a one-hour later start time.
