School Hours

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2017-18 Oyster River Cooperative School District school year.  The start of the school year is only weeks away.  As always, we feel honored to educate your child(ren).  This email is to inform you of the first day of school and the new start times and end times at all our schools.

The first student day for grades 1 -12 is August 30.

Kindergarten students will begin the following day on August 31.

Our preschool program (P.E.P) will begin September 5. 
Morning hours for P.E.P will be 9:15 - 11:45 and afternoon hours will be from 12:45 - 3:45.

Oyster River High School and Middle School will start at 8:15 am and end at 3:05 pm.

The Mast Way and Moharimet Elementary Schools will start at 8:55 am and end at 3:10 pm.

There will be supervision at the high school and middle schools 30 minutes before start time beginning at 7:45 am.

As a reminder, in order to start the middle school and high school 40 minutes later than past years, afternoon busing will be for all K-12 students simultaneously.  The morning runs will continue the traditional way with Grades 5-12 runs followed by Grades K-4 runs.

If you wish to get an estimate of when your child will be picked up in the morning you can go to our web site,  Look for the Quick Link heading on the right-hand side and click on Bus Routes and Elementary Boundaries then enter your address.  Remember, every school year, especially at the beginning of the year, pick up times are best estimates as drivers learn their new routes, new faces and their locations. 

If you have any questions regarding transportation please contact Transportation Director Lisa Huppe at: or by phone at 603-389-3298.

We look forward to seeing your children and providing them a great education provided by our dedicated faculty and support staff.
