    Late Start Days will continue for middle and high school students during the 2022-23 school year. New to elementary schools, however, are Early Release Days.

    At its June 20 meeting, the Williamson County School Board approved 27 Late Start Days and 11 Early Release Days. On Late Start Days, most of which take place on a Monday, middle and high school students will begin the school day 45 minutes later than usual. 

    The middle and high school Late Start Days for the 2022-23 school year are listed below:

    • August 15, 22 and 29
    • September 6, 12, 19 and 26
    • October 3, 17, 24 and 31
    • November 7, 14 and 28
    • December 5

    • February 6, 13 and 27
    • March 6, 20 and 27
    • April 3 and 10

    Early Release Days for elementary students will take place on a Wednesday. On these days, elementary students will be released 112 minutes early. Buses and car lines will operate at dismissal. Students who can’t be picked up at that time can remain at school until the regular release time, and schools will provide supervision through homework club, individual reading time, etc. A second round of elementary bus routes will run after the secondary school bus routes are completed, leaving on the same schedule as regular school days. SACC hours will continue on the regular schedule. For more information about Early Release Days and what families can expect, watch the June edition of the Superintendent's Report.
