Our instructional day begins at 9:00 a.m. Students are NOT to arrive at school before 8:15 a.m., unless they are enrolled in the Before and After School Program. Breakfast is served from 8:15 a.m.-8:45 a.m. Exceptions are only made for buses that are late arrivals.
Our instructional day ends at 3:25 p.m. and dismissal is 3:30 p.m. for car riders and walkers. Bus riders are dismissed as their buses arrive (~3:45 p.m.) Please make sure that your child reports to school on time and remains in school until 3:30 p.m. We want our students to receive full instruction each day.
Students are involved in intensive intervention from 2:30 p.m.-3:20 p.m. each day in the area that they are not proficient. Please schedule all routine medical and dental appointments on days students are out of school or on early dismissal days.
DPS yellow buses will deliver meals and snacks for children once each weekday to approximately 67 school and community sites located in areas of the greatest need in the Durham community. The buses will also provide the printed supplemental learning materials for distribution on March 23-25. All children ages 1 to 18, whether or not they are Durham Public Schools students, are eligible to receive a food bag, which will include lunch and a snack. Children must accompany their parents to the meal pick-up to receive a food bag.
