    • North Frederick begins and ends earlier than some other elementary schools with the instructional day being from 8:20 AM – 2:48 PM.

    • Students may begin arriving to school at 8:00 AM, and are expected to be in class by 8:18 AM for instruction to begin promptly at 8:20 AM.

    • Dismissal may begin as early as 2:20 PM for magnet students who use FCPS transportation for areas outside of the NFES district. While no new instruction begins after early dismissal begins, students remaining will receive instructional support reinforcing previously learned skills or enhancing others.
