TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – The Twin Falls School District has planned the bell schedule for the 2017-18 school year.

The district says that over the past year a committee representing staff, parents, community members, and students reviewed previous school start and end times to and came up with the new schedule.

The new bell schedule is as follows:

Elementary schools – 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Middle schools – 8:40 a.m. to 3:50 p.m.
High schools – 8:10 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.

According to the district,

After much evaluation, the committee feels confident in the implementation of this new bell schedule for all schools in the TFSD. The district is also exploring ideas for before and after school programs to help with some of the challenges the new schedule may create for some parents. This bell schedule committee will reconvene during the 2017-18 school year to once again evaluate this challenging decision and see if any changes need to me made.

If you have questions or concerns about the schedule, contact your student’s principal.
