Loring Bell Time Update for 2021-22 School Year
Friday, November 20, 2020 10:30 AM

Dear families of Loring Community School, 

We wanted to bring to your attention that next year, for the 2021-22 school year, Loring Community School will have a new bell (school start and end) times of 8:25 AM - 2:55 PM. 

At their November 10 meeting, the MPS Board of Education voted to approve the proposed bell time schedule beginning school year 2021-22. The Board of Education is confident the approved schedule can meet the goals of:

  • Increasing participation in after-school programming particularly for those schools with a higher concentration of families receiving educational benefits as this has been shown to have a direct correlation to student achievement and sense of belonging.
  • Reducing transportation costs so that savings can be reinvested into the classroom.
  • Improving on-time arrivals at schools.

If you have any questions about this change, please let me know.
