New House Bill Leads to Extended School Day for Lufkin Students
According to a press release from the Lufkin Independent School District, a recently passed state House Bill will lead to a few more minutes of school for elementary and primary students.
House Bill 2610 requires that school districts provide 75,600 hours or 180 days times seven hours a day of instruction each school year including intermissions and recess. Beginning January 5, to be in compliance with the amount of hours required by the state, the school day for elementary and primary campuses will be slightly extended to 7:45 a.m. until 3:05 p.m.
Free breakfast will begin at 7 a.m. for elementary campuses and 7:15 a.m. for primary campuses. This change will not affect pick up times for bus riders in the morning, but may put bus arrival times a few minutes later in the afternoon. Students who arrive after 7:45 a.m. will need to be walked in to the front office.
