New Ending Times For Schools

New Ending Times For Schools
Posted on 07/29/2022

Garden City Public Schools will have new ending times for the 2022-23 school year. This was due to the approval of the negotiated agreement between the school district and the Garden City Education Association.  

The agreement added 20 minutes to the daily student contact time and the number of contract days was reduced by six days for the school year. Student contact changes from 400 minutes to 420 minutes/day, which reduces total days from 174.5 to 169.5 for the district. 

The start times for the elementary schools in the district will be 8:30 a.m. The schools will release at 4:10 p.m. daily.

The intermediate centers in the district will start at 8:30 a.m. and will let out at 4:05 p.m. every day. 

The middle schools in the district will start at 7:50 a.m. and will end school at 3:10 p.m. each day.

The Garden City Achieve will start at 8:20 a.m. and will let out at 3:40 p.m.  

The Garden City High School will start at 7:50 a.m. and will end the school day at 3:20 p.m.

Garfield Early Childhood Center’s morning session will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 11:45 a.m.  The afternoon session will start at 12:25 p.m. and end at 3:40 p.m.

The district is asking parents to update their contact information with the schools. The district needs this contact information so buildings can contact families on any updates as we progress through the school year. 

The first day of school for the 2022-23 school year will be Wednesday, August 17 with a half-day orientation for students in grades kindergarten through fifth, seventh, ninth and tenth, and all students new to Garden City Public Schools.  The first full day of school for Garden City Public Schools will be Thursday, August 18, 2022.  All classes for elementary through high school will be in session for the start of the 2022-23 school year. Garfield Early Childhood Center’s first day of school will be held on Monday, August 22, 2022.
