School Hours

Start and End Times

H.E. McCracken Middle School parents are reminded that our school schedules will be the same for the 2020-2021 academic year that begins Monday, September 8th. 

Classes will begin each morning at 8:45 a.m., and our doors will open each morning at 8:15 a.m.  

Students will be dismissed each afternoon at 3:45 p.m., and students must be picked up no later than 4:15 p.m. unless parents confirm in writing that students may stay after school for athletics or scheduled tutoring.  

Parents: In order to accommodate the need for early drop-offs, as well as provide a safe and secure location for students prior to the start of school, we will be implementing a Bulldogs Before School Program, just as all other middle schools in Bluffton. This program will be $1.00 per day and will be from 7:30am-8:15am. Parents will be required to sign up and any student arriving prior to 8:15am will accrue a charge of $1.00. I hope you understand the need to keep our students safe and supervised in the morning. Please use this link if you are interested in before school care.
