Keep DMPS From Changing Their School Hours

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


DMPS plans to change the school hours this August. Making it more difficult to get to in from school for many, making us get out later in the day, and making elementary schools get out later. 

PLEASE SIGN HERE TOO: https://www.change.org/p/des-moines-public-school-board-stop-early-elementary-school-start-times-in-des-moines-public-schools?recruiter=843201144&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=share_petition

Do you think a 5 year old should go home at 12:55 in the afternoon every Wednesday? Spend the next 4 hours alone until their parents get home? That’s not safe, nor fair to the student. Especially at such a young age. 

It also effects Middle and Highschoolers. Making the start time later and dismissal time much later Than usual.

The Des Moines Public school board has tried for many years to change the school hours, and every time Parents, Students, and staff have told them no! And it’s worked! Until now, when they decide not to inform the students, parents, or community of the voting. Just so they don’t have anyone show up at the school board meeting to speak against them! It’s not fair because school boards are for he community to address issues within the school district, when all they are doing is causing issues!! 

Sign this petition to show we don’t want the school hours changed! If it doesn’t change, little kids will be dismissed as early as 12:55PM and start as early as 7:40AM, have middle/high school students dismissed as late as 3:30PM, and start at 8:25. 

HELP US PROVE THE DISTRICT WRONG! And that making changes behind the students back doesn’t get them their way!
