Porterville Unified School District is changing its bell schedule for the 2018-2019 school year. Our campus will open at 7:45 am and instruction will begin at 8:10 am. Students arriving after 8:10 am will be considered tardy. Once again, we will serve breakfast in the classroom to all of our students. Students in kindergarten through third grade will be dismissed at 2:25 pm and students in fourth through sixth grades will be dismissed at 3:10 pm. Additionally, all students will be released early every Wednesday at 1:45 pm to provide professional development and collaboration opportunities for our school staff. We will be in contact with the district's transportation department to ensure a smooth transition for students to this new schedule. We appreciate your patience and support as we continue to provide the best education for your students.
