Information about New Start Time

July 23, 2021

Dear Parents/Families of Rush Arts,

After revisiting the start time for Rush Arts, our School District and Transportation Services have agreed to change our school start time to 7:45am and our end time will be 2:49pm for the 2021-2022 school year.

We are providing this information now so you can start to make any needed family arrangements ahead of time to ensure your child can attend school on time every day in alignment with this new schedule.  More information about our return to school in the fall, and opportunities for you to participate in school and District-level meetings and events, will be shared with you during the District’s Back-to-School campaign leading up to August 31st — the first day of school.

In the meantime, I encourage you to visit the School District of Philadelphia website on a regular basis
for the most up to date information:

Additionally, on Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 5:30pm, we will host a Zoom meeting
to answer any questions we can about the new start time. Also come and meet the
new principal as well.  You can click on the Day/Date above or scroll down for the zoom meeting link
