School Start Time Change

     There has been a great deal of change these last few years, but it is not over yet. 

     Bethel High School used to start at 7:35 a.m. and end at 2:30 p.m. This past year, students enjoyed a few extra minutes of shut-eye before classes began at  7:55 a.m.

     Despite the extra time in the morning, middle and high school students did have to share the same buses. This, along with parents picking up and dropping off students, as well as student drivers created traffic congestion in the complex. 

    Bethel also has to hire police officers to direct traffic. 

     Next year, to alleviate these traffic issues, Bethel High School and the Middle School will no longer have the same start and end times.     

     Next year, the High School will start at 7:10 a.m. and end at 2:10 p.m. 

     This change now allows students to go to work, clubs, or sports earlier in the day, 

     Schedule changes are coming soon, too, so be on the lookout!
