HSPVA 2018-2019 Start Times

Dear HSPVA Families,

In January, HISD announced standardized start/dismissal times for the 2018-19 school year to improve our delivery of reliable and affordable transportation to our students.

Beginning next fall, the district will operate with the following standardized start/dismissal times:

  • 7:30 a.m.-2:50 p.m. for elementary schools and early childhood centers
  • 8:30 a.m.-3:50 p.m. for PK-8, K-8, and middle schools
  • 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. for high schools and 6-12 campuses
  • 7:50 a.m.-3:40 p.m. for HSPVA and select other unique magnet schools (Our first “bell” will be at 7:45 a.m. with students being tardy/class beginning at 7:50 a.m.)

HISD will communicate the new start times beginning next week with emails, phone calls, text messages, and stories on our district website, school websites, social media channels, and weekly e-newsletter. HISD will also keep you updated about changes to bus routes as the new start/dismissal times are implemented. I just wanted to let you know of our specific start times at HSPVA for the coming year!


I hope your week is outstanding!
