Dear Parents/Guardians,

To address the busing issues which have resulted in students arriving late for school, our bell times will be changing in September 2019.  RLJH will start at 8:10 and end at 1:55. Lunch for grade 6 & 7 will be from 11:20 to 11:55 and for grades 8 & 9 it will be from 11:50 to 12:25.

These changes will benefit the school in the following ways:

It will allow us to adopt the same schedule as Madeline Symonds Middle School. This will allow us to stagger our lunch times and make better use of our specialist spaces, including the gymnasium.
This change better aligns our start and end times with other schools in the Charles P. Allen Family of Schools. Having an earlier start time means our bus runs will be the first in the morning and afternoon.

I know the change in start and end times take a little getting used to for students, staff and families.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to the school.


Debbie Metherall
