IMPORTANT LEXINGTON PUBLIC SCHOOL TASK FORCE

LPS START TIME EVALUATION MOVING FORWARD

Tuesday, May 22

6:00 pm

Battin Hall, Cary Memorial Building

Lexington Public Schools (LPS) is in the process of evaluating whether to change school start times. A School Start Time Task Force has been meeting to research and investigate the impacts and options to changing start times. This effort will impact Elementary Schools!! The Fiske PTO highly encourages parents to educate themselves on the impact to Elementary School Children and make their opinions known. Most of the options under consideration would change Elementary school day to earlier such as  7:35 AM to 2:05 PM with buses starting at 7:00 AM.

The School Committee will have a Public Hearing Tuesday, May 22 at 6:00 - 7:00 PM. There will be a public comment period at the meeting. More information is available on the website; check the April 24th presentation for the current Options.

If you can not attend, please reach out and share your opinions/comments with the School Committee. One can email all members at school-com@lexingtonma.org or you can find individual addresses at lps.lexingtonma.org

Please share this information with friends and neighbors who may not be aware particularly those with children too young to be currently enrolled in LPS.
