Students in grades K-6 will have late start days during the 2021-22 school year. Schools will start two hours later than their regular times on those days.
Teachers will be working together in planning and preparing learning experiences for scholars. The time used by teachers during the late start days is in addition to staff development done during the summer and outside of the school day.
Hopkins Public Schools’ buses will pick up students two hours later than normal. At the end of the school day, buses will run their regular schedules.
Your school provides limited low-cost child care on late start days for families who need it. Registration information can be obtained from your student's school, or forms will be sent home with families.
