CORRECTION: What was listed as school opening times is really the schedule for class starting times. Schools will open much earlier than class start times. For instance, Haynes Bridge Middle School Principal Lauren Seidman pointed out that her school's regular opening is at 8:20 a.m., and early arrival students come to the school as early as 7:50 a.m.
Summer really isn't over, but school is back in session on Monday, Aug. 13 for Fulton County students. For students bemoaning the end of summer, just be glad you aren't in Cherokee County, where school went back in session on Aug. 1.
It wouldn't do to be late to school on the first day back, so Patch presents these class start and end times as listed on the Fulton County Schools' website. (The full list of bell times accompanies this article.)
For the most part, classes at elementary schools will start at 7:40 a.m. and end at 2:20 p.m.
Middle schools are a different story. They will start anywhere between 7:45 a.m and 8:55 a.m., and end between 3:05 p.m. and 4:05 p.m. Check the list below to be sure your child makes it to school on time.
High schools in Alpharetta and Milton – including brand new Cambridge High – will begin classes at 8:25 a.m. and end at 3:35 p.m.
