New Bell Times for 2021-22 School Year
Wednesday, November 18, 2020 5:40 AM

We wanted to bring to your attention that next year, for the 2021-22 school year, both Lake Harriet Upper and Lake Harriet Lower will have new bell (school start and end) times:
  • Lower Campus 9:15 – 3:45
  • Upper Campus 9:20 – 3:50. 
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.
