   All local children, 18 years and younger, are eligible for the healthy breakfast and lunch meals. Meals must be eaten in the school. Small children must be accompanied by an adult or older sibling who will be responsible for them.

East Aurora will stagger 2016-17 start, end times for school levels

UPDATED: 8/9/2016

East Aurora School District 131 will change the some schools’ starting and ending times for the 2016-17 school year. See below for 2016-17 school day:

Pre-K half day (Early Childhood Center, Child Service Center, Oak Park, Johnson, Gates)

Morning: 8:10 a.m. to 10:40 a.m.

Afternoon: 11:40 a.m. to 2:10 p.m.

Benavides Kindergarten & Pre-K full day (Benavides Kindergarten Center, O'Donnell)

8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Late start will be 8:55 a.m. on Tuesdays

Elementary school

8:20 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.

Late start will be 9:10 a.m. on Tuesdays

Middle school and Magnet Academy

8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

High school

7:55 a.m. to 3:04 p.m.

  Late start at the high school will be 8:55 a.m. on Tuesdays. There will be no late start at the other levels. *Correction: See above for late start times for Kindergarten, Pre-K, and Elementary late start times.  

When the East Aurora Council IFT/AFT Local 604 contract was approved in April, it included a commitment to studying the possibility of staggering the start of elementary, middle, and high school days, so parents with students at more than one level can more easily drop off students.
