Extracurricular activities are typically scheduled in the afternoons and early evenings during the school week, however, some extracurricular activities may also be scheduled on weekends.
Most schools are in session for six to seven hours with a forty minute lunch. Anywhere from 7:30 to 8:30 are start times and ending times are between 3 and 4. Some school districts stagger the different levels of school (elementary, middle, and high school) because of their school bus schedules.
