WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — According to a school spokeswoman Codington Elementary School’s start time change will be for the rest of the school year.  Last week Codington Elementary School parents and students learned starting August 24 school will begin and end 15 minutes earlier.

According to a letter sent out to Codington parents, the time change will be during construction on River Road. The letter said the NCDOT’s River Road project will put more traffic on Carolina Beach Road, so school officials say a time change will help them avoid some of that congestion and make it safer.

The letter also added that this would be a “temporary measure to ensure safety of our Codington  community members”.

Some parents have voiced concerns about the late notice of the change and doubts that the change will make the school commute safer.
