The school day is getting a little bit longer for 17 elementary schools this year.

To make sure they provide the minimum instructional hours required by the state for a 180-day academic year, these schools will be adding between 10 and 20 minutes to their schedules.


Elementary schools changing their bell times for 2013-14 include Bostian, China Grove, Cleveland, Enochville, Faith, Granite Quarry, Hanford Dole, Hurley, Isenberg, Landis, Millbridge, Morgan, Mount Ulla, Overton, Rockwell, Shive and Woodleaf.

Some are changing only the start or end times, while a few are adjusting both. Please see the accompanying chart for details.

In addition, Knox Middle School will keep its day the same length but shift it five minutes earlier, in order to better coordinate bus transportation.
