Changes begin Monday for middle school, high school students in EBR
EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, La. (WAFB) - Changes to bus routes, school start times, and school end times began Monday, September 11, for many students in the East Baton Rouge Public School System.
Middle and high school students began class several minutes early at 7:05 a.m. Meanwhile, classes will be dismissed five minutes later at 2:27 p.m.
The changes are needed to make sure the school system meets its legal requirement of classroom instruction time, school officials said. They added that time was lost due to a bus sickout and early dismissals at the start of the fall semester.
Elementary school students within the East Baton Rouge Parish Public School system will not be impacted by the class time changes.
School officials also said many students have also received new bus cards with new bus routes. As a result, students were encouraged to arrive at their bus stops a couple of minutes early on Monday, September 11.
Parents can monitor the East Baton Rouge Public School System’s website for the latest updates.
