Westonka Start Times

  • The Westonka School Board unanimously approved changes to school start times district-wide during its regular meeting Dec. 10, 2018, citing the latest research and best practices regarding sleep patterns in adolescents.

    The district arrived at the new start times, which will begin in the 2019-2020 school year, by looking at relevant research; gathering feedback from staff, students and parents; and considering logistics, such as transportation, that impact the student schedule. Starting in the fall of 2019, Westonka’s primary schools will start at 9:05 a.m. and release at 3:45 p.m., Grandview Middle School will start at 8:10 a.m. and release at 2:50 p.m. and Mound Westonka High School will start at 8:20 a.m. and release at 3:00 p.m.
