Please check out and comment on the proposed new start and end times for the school day in Queen Anne's County. For example, Matapeake Elementary School would start at 9:25 instead of 9:15 and end at 4:15 instead of 3:45.
I agree w/ you ^^^^ Will make it harder for those who participate in extracurricular activities be it sports or dance or whatever... most of those start at 6ish... so now they get home at 5, gotta do homework, eat dinner & rush off... that's already a challenge with the way it is now. especially since in a lot of homes both parents work... then if enough parents complain, then the extracurricular activities will start later - hence end later .... then you've got overly tired kids...

Yes, it has to do with budgets. They had an evaluation done of the busing system to see how they could save money and the recommended changes require the time changes. They are soliciting input on the website. I sent a letter to all the BOE members and received several comments back. They are still just considering the move, so please send in your comments.
