Charles County Public Schools has changed the start and end times for J.P. Ryon Elementary School for next school. Starting with the 2017-18 school year, school for students at Ryon begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. This is a 10-minute change from the current school schedule.

The change comes from the opening of a transition school located on the Ryon campus that will house Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School students next school year while the building undergoes renovations. The change also will help to balance the bus traffic to John Hanson Middle School, Ryon and the transition school.

Staff at both Ryon and Mudd are in the process of notifying the school communities of the changes for next school year.
