Bell Schedule

We have many different bell schedules at Rheem to keep parents and students on their toes!

Please note that we provide below the schedules that your child will encounter during the school year.  For K-2nd graders however, there will be times, due to field trips or other special events, that your child's entire grade or class may be designated as Early or Late for a particular day.  You will always be notified ahead of time by your teachers, and by the website calendar.

Kindergarteners, 1st, and 2nd graders are split into Early and Late Birds. For the first three weeks of school, all K-2nd students are Early Birds.   


M,T,Th,F Early Birds:  8:25am - 1:55pm Late Birds:  9:25am - 3:05pm
Wednesday All K-2nd: 8:25am - 1:50pm  

For the 3rd-5th Graders , there is no longer the Early/Late Bird split. However, for the first three weeks of school, 3rd graders follow the K-2nd Early Bird schedule. 


M,T,Th,F 8:25am - 3:05pm
Wednesday 8:25am - 1:50pm
