Middle School Bell Times Return to Normal

The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System has released the following:

Thanks to the proactive work of transportation personnel and 1st Student, it has been determined that Middle School start and finish times should remain unchanged from last year.

Approximately 5 weeks ago, First Student began work on more than 300 bus routes and 6000 bus stops for our 52 school sites. From the beginning the school system's marching order has been to create a more efficient way of transporting the more than 34,000 public school students safely to and from school. After running "dry" routes on Thursday and Friday of last week, 1st Student and SCCPSS determined that the newly proposed bell schedule for middle schools would hamper or impede attaining our stated goals.

Further testing has determined that last year's bell times for the middle schools and newly announced bell times for the elementary and high schools appear to be complementary, allowing for greater efficiency and safety in the transportation of our student population.

Only the middle schools will be affected by this adjustment of school start times.

All bus routes and pick-up times are scheduled to be published on Wednesday, August 9th.

Middle School start times are as follows:
