Mequon-Thiensville adjusts school start, end times

Feb. 23, 2011

The Mequon-Thiensville School District will change the starting and ending times for the elementary and middle schools for the 2011-2012 school year. The shift will save the district $140,000 in the upcoming year.

The schools affected by this change are Donges Bay, Oriole Lane and Wilson elementary schools, and Lake Shore and Steffen middle schools.

The middle schools will start at 8:10 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m. The elementary schools will start at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.

The district decided to implement these changes in order to help close an annual $1 million budget shortfall it currently faces.

"This change in start and end times is another example of the school district working cooperatively with our transportation company (Alltran) to reduce non-instructional costs and help our overall budget situation for the upcoming school year," said Gail Grieger, MTSD director of business services.
