The Calendar Advisory appointed by the School Committee made their final presentation concerning school start times at the school committee meeting on 3/4/15. This final presentation is attached below. A Start Time Sub-Committee has been formed and met for the first time on 3/17/15. Changing school start times for middle and high school students impacts start times for all students in the district, so this is a conversation that must include all members of our school community. Meetings, agendas, and minutes of the Advisory and the School Committee will be posted online at http://www.lunenburgma.gov/ . All meetings are open to the public, and citizens are encouraged to attend to provide their input.
