In preparing the school budget for the 2012-2013 school year, the East Islip School District was able to reduce transportation costs by eliminating three buses. This elimination of the buses made it necessary to change the elementary school hours.
            
Beginning in September 2012, the school hours for all of of East Islip's elementary students (kindergarten through Grade 5) will be 9:35 a.m. to 3:35 p.m.
