Hamilton announces she will keep Northeast start time as is

Interim Superintendent of Schools Winifred Hamilton sent the following letter to Northeast Elementary School parents and faculty earlier today to announce that she has decided against shifting the elementary school’s start time in September:

The letter comes as a result of meetings with Northeast parents after several spoke out about her original proposal to swap Northeast’s start time with Rogers International School. Rogers time will change next year; instead of its current school day of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Rogers students will begin school at 8:10 a.m. and finish at 2:40 p.m.
