New start times to take effect Tuesday at St. Paul public schools

Updated: September 03, 2019 06:10 AM

It's back to school for most metro-area kids Tuesday.

That means big changes for students in the St. Paul school district.


Start times for St. Paul Public Schools will change as of Tuesday; most middle and high schools will start an hour later, at 8:30 a.m., while most elementary schools will start an hour earlier, at 7:30 a.m.

Elementary schools that start at 9:30 a.m. will keep that start time.

Tom Burr, the SPPS transportation director, said as a result, bus schedules will change as well.

"We do know that's a huge change with the school community so we continue to work on it," Burr said.
