Longview ISD school days will start and end at different times in 2012-13 in an effort to reduce school bus wait times.
Elementary classes will start 15 minutes earlier, but will also end in time for buses to deliver elementary students to their homes – and be ready and waiting for middle and high school students.
In previous years, older students waited as long as 20 minutes on average in the afternoons for buses to arrive from earlier runs. In some cases, students waited an hour, or more. Following are the regular school day start and end times for 2012-13:
Start: 7:45 a.m. - End: 2:45 p.m.
Start: 8:15 a.m. - End: 3:45 p.m.
Start: 8:15 a.m. - End: 3:55 p.m.
An automated bus route finder is available on the official Longview ISD website. Go to w3.lisd.org and click the ‘Back to School’ link to the left of the featured photo.
