Input needed on later school start times for Salamanca City Central School District

The Salamanca City Central School District is seeking parent input into a similar start time for Seneca Intermediate/High School students and Prospect Elementary.


1). Prospect and Seneca Intermediate /High School students will NOT be on the same bus.

2). Proposed start time for all schools would be around 8:00 AM.

In the past, school start times were dictated by transportation availability, that is no longer a limit due to the increased transportation department.

Why are they looking into this?

• Research indicates that intermediate and high school students perform better with later school start times and that primary school age students perform better earlier in the morning.

• They also have concerns with tardiness at the intermediate and high school level.

The school district understands a change in the school schedule has a significant impact on the family schedule so before they recommend making any changes, they are requesting input from Warrior families.

If your child(ren) attend any of these schools, visit the school website at for more information. Direct link to the parent survey:
