Start time changes for two Muscogee Schools

Due to concerns over traffic congestion and safety, the start times for two area elementary schools will be pushed back 15 minutes starting next week

The new start time for Eagle Ridge Academy and North Columbus Elementary will change from 8 a.m. to 7:45 a.m., and the new end time for both schools will change from 2:30 to 2:15 p.m.

The bus stop drop-off time will also change by 15 minutes on the return home, but changes to the start and end times will not impact bus pick-up time, instructional activities during the school day or after school programs. 

Parents may continue to drop-off car riders as early as 7:15 a.m.
