School Hours & Transportation

School Hours

The school office is open and staffed daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

School hours are 8:25 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. for all students. We request that students arrive in a timely manner. Students may arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. Students arriving after 8:30 a.m. will be considered tardy. Please be sure to have arrangements for your child(ren) to be picked up at the end of the day on time.


In the morning, parents may walk their children into the building (after parking in the Shaw JCC lot) or drop children off in the front of the school and follow the turn around procedure. At dismissal, all cars must follow the designated traffic pattern. There will be no parking in front of the school at anytime. If you need to come into the school, you must use the parking lot in the front or back of the Shaw JCC.

Pick up begins at 3:45 p.m. except on early Shabbat dismissal days, when dismissal is 3:00 p.m. (Fridays, Nov. 3, 2017 – Feb. 23, 2018). Please check the Calendar for other early dismissal days, as well as half and full days off. There are also 12:30 p.m. early dismissal days for staff meetings. Akron, Copley and Revere will not provide us with a bus on any of these early dismissal days.

Children who are not picked up by 4:00 will be sent to the Shaw JCC KidSpace program.You will be charged for this service. To make arrangements for your child(ren) to participate in the Shaw JCC KidSpace program, or in the before school program, please call Diane Galizio (330-835-0035).
