Middle School & High School Start Times

We are working hard to make sure the transition back to school is as smooth as possible. We know the construction at both schools creates challenges for our families. Below is information that will help with your planning for your child’s return to school on August 17th.

Student Transportation and School Start Times

In order to improve safety and reduce vehicle congestion at the High School, changes have been made to bus routes. This change impacts the Middle School’s start and ending time.

  • The Middle School will now start at 7:50 AM and end at 2:57 PM.
  • The High School start and end time will remain at 7:28 AM and 2:43 PM.

​The Middle School site will be a bus transfer site. Some High School students, depending on bus routes, will transfer to a new bus at the Middle School and then continue to the High School. This system of transfers will reduce the number of buses going to the High School and help with congestion. All of the High School buses will now drop off on the back side of the school (north side). There will no longer be bus traffic mixing with student/visitor vehicles in the front parking and drop-off areas.

Many of the Middle School students will have a later bus pick-up time than they did last year due to these changes. Middle School students will be provided supervision in the morning before school starts. The building will be open for students at 7:05 AM. Students arriving at school early may choose to go to their house area or eat breakfast as part of Nutrition Services’ new Middle School breakfast program.

We understand the change to the Middle School start and end times impacts families. We also apologize for not being able to provide this information sooner. We were not able to calculate the number of buses and routes needed until we had identified the number of students requesting bus transportation. Bus pick-up and drop-off notices should arrive in the mail early the week of August, 7th.

Governor Walker Visits Hudson High School

It was an honor to have Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker visit Hudson High School this morning (Friday, June 2nd). He was able to take a brief tour of the school where we highlighted the great work of our students and staff. Kudos to the Chemistry and Orchestra students who represented Hudson High School’s academic excellence.

Following his tour of the school, Governor Walker addressed students, staff, parents and community members in the auditorium. His remarks focused on the opportunities available to students who are going on to post-secondary learning or the workforce in Wisconsin. Perfect timing for our seniors who were in the audience as they prepare for graduation tomorrow. The Governor also spoke about his investment in K-12 school funding in his biennial budget proposal.
