School Hours & Transportation

School Hours

The school office is open and staffed daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. School hours are 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday.  On Fridays, dismissal will be at 3:00 p.m. for observance of Shabbat.

We request that students arrive in a timely manner. Students may arrive as early as 8:15 a.m. Students arriving after 9:00 a.m. will be considered tardy. 


In the morning, parents should drop children off in the front of the school and follow the turn around procedure. At dismissal, all cars must follow the designated traffic pattern. There will be no parking in front of the school at any time. If you need to come into the school, you must use the parking lot in the front or back of the Shaw JCC.

Pick up begins at 3:30 p.m. except on early Shabbat dismissal days, when dismissal is 3:00 p.m. Please check the Calendar for other early dismissal days, as well as half and full days off. Akron will not provide us with a bus on any of these early dismissal days.

If you need childcare after school, please call Lyndsey Heffern, Youth Program Director, at or call (330) 835-0064 to make arrangements for your child(ren) to participate in the Shaw JCC KidSpace program.
