Dear Deer Park School District Families,

Please be reminded of school start and end times for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year.

High schools usually start earlier because students who need to leave for sports and activities that are scheduled at other area high schools miss part of their last class of the day in order to make it to the event by the scheduled start time. The earlier a high school starts, the less class time students need to miss in order to catch the bus to their game or event.
