Changes in School Starting times!

Changes in School Starting times!
Posted on 07/05/2018

The West Deptford Board of Education has approved changes to the starting times for each of the district’s three elementary schools and the middle school starting in September, 2018.   These changes are being made in order to provide increased instructional time for all elementary students.   The changes in starting times are as follows:

Red Bank, Oakview and Green-Field Schools

Students at Red Bank, Oakview and Green-Fields Schools will begin their day 20 minutes earlier while the dismissal times will remain the same.


  • New Starting Time - 8:50 am                               
  • Dismissal Time - 3:25 pm


  • New Starting Time - 8:35 am                               
  • Dismissal Time - 3:10 pm

Red Bank                          

  • New Starting Time - 8:40 am                                
  • Dismissal Time - 3:15 pm

Middle School

In order to ensure that we have enough time to transport all elementary students (due to the earlier start times) the middle school day will shift 10 minutes.  Both the start of the school day and the dismissal time will be 10 minutes earlier.

New Starting Time – 7:55 am

New Dismissal Time – 2:37 pm

More information about these changes will be sent by the building principals as we get closer to the start of school.
