The Howard County Public School System announced Wednesday the start times for all 77 schools once hybrid learning begins March 1. All school start times will be 20 minutes later than they were when students were last in school buildings in March 2020. Elementary schools will start between 8:35 and 9:45 a.m., middle schools will begin between 8 and 8:45 a.m., and the first bell for all 12 high schools will be 7:45 a.m. Elementary and middle schools will start at different times to maximize bus route efficiency.
