  • 2017/18 School Year

    The first day of school for the 2017/18 School Year is Wednesday, August 30, 2017 for 1st - 5th Grade students. Kindergartners will start on Tuesday September 5th.

     The student’s school day will be from 8:00 AM to 2:15 PM. You can find information about arrival and dismissal procedures, along with a map of the building (which will be updated in August) on our website under Arrival and Dismissal Procedures. Please note that we will only release your child to someone on their registration form, unless we have written notice indicating otherwise.

    Notice of School Hours Change for Next Year 2017-18

    PPS will be changing school start and end times at a number of schools, including Woodstock. As of the start of school in fall 2017, we will start at 8:00 and release at 2:15 p.m. This minor adjustment is part of a district-wide alignment of schedules. Please take note of this change.

    The schedule alignment allows for more efficient bus transportation, makes it easier to schedule substitute and itinerant teachers, provides more consistency in instructional time and allows for better use of teachers’ professional development time.
    If you have questions about the change, please contact Antonio Lopez, alopez@pps.net, 503-916-3440.
