Junior high bell schedule change for 2022-23

When junior high students return for the 2022-23 school year, the Jefferson bell schedule will shift ten minutes at both the beginning and end of the school day. The new junior high schedule will be 8:20 am - 3:35 pm. The elementary bell schedule will not change and will remain 8:20 am - 2:55 pm.

This change to the junior high schedule was made due to schedule changes made at Community High School District 99. They are moving to a hybrid block schedule, which will impact bus routes. This requires us to make this slight adjustment to our schedule since our bus service contract is tied to District 99 and Downers Grove 58. We have been and continue to work with First Student and Sunrise, our transportation service providers, and the number of routes should remain substantially the same. We do not anticipate any major disruptions to the school day or significant impacts on student activities before or after school.
