The new school day hours apply to all schools except Manchester School of Technology, which hours will remain the same. Elementary students who each breakfast served at school can arrive at 8:15 a.m.

On early release days for elementary schools, dismissal will be 11:15 a.m.

Delayed weather openings will be two hours later than the new arrival time.

The school system hopes the adjusted hours will provide more instructional time for middle and high school students. If there are less than three snow days this winter, the anticipated last day of school is Thursday, June, 9, 2016.
