a graphic advertising the Melissa ISD school day hours for the 2022-2023 school year

Melissa ISD has determined the projected school day start and end times, early drop-off times, and early release times for the 2022-2023 school year. These updated times will go into effect on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 23, 2022. Updated bell schedules for our middle and high school campuses will be published closer to the start of the new school year.

Note: In determining the school day hours, the Melissa Schools administrative team continues to evaluate a number of factors, including instructional time, student population growth, bus transportation, carpool drop-off and pick-up, working parents, and families with children at multiple schools.
