Each year, we review the school start times at our elementary and middle schools to ensure that we are providing a safe and comfortable transportation experience for our students, while also being responsible stewards of district resources.

We strive to only make changes in situations that would improve services for our students, and therefore, typically only change opening times for schools moving to or from temporary locations.

With that in mind, we are announcing four different starting times for the 2018-19 school year. Three of these changes are for schools that are moving to a temporary location or returning to a new building at their permanent location. The remaining start time is for the new Wilburton elementary school.

School 2018-19 Start Time 2018-19 Dismissal Time 2018-19 Wednesday Dismissal Time

All other schools will have the same start and dismissal times they had during the 2017-18 school year.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
