Daily Routines For City Students Will Change In August

When Charlottesville kids troop back to school in late August, the kindergarten and elementary school students will begin classes a half-hour earlier than they do now. That means an 8 a.m. start-time for the division’s youngest students. Middle-schoolers can now look forward to an 8:30 a.m. start time, and their older brothers and sisters in high school will begin at 9:05 a.m. ¬†Some Buford Middle School students (pictured) are shown on their campus.¬† That represents a start that’s 50 minutes later for those in middle school, and five minutes later for the high school kids. The school board has also approved a hike in school lunch prices. Both a breakfast and a lunch will cost a quarter more than it does this semester. Breakfasts at every level will be $1.50. Up to the 8th grade, a lunch will cost $2.25 and anyone who’s at CHS will pay $2.50.
