Bell Schedule

Bell Schedule 24-25


Pershing has two main bell schedules.  Our regular bell schedule and our minimum day bell schedule.  The minimum day bell schedule occurs every Wednesday.  Unless otherwise noted, all other school days are our regular bell schedule.

School begins everyday at 8:00 AM.  We encourage families to drop their students off no later than 7:55 AM daily in order to ensure they are able to make it to their first class on time.

The Pershing campus opens for students at 7:35 AM daily. 

Breakfast is available in the cafeteria, free of charge, for all students in the morning. Due to supervision constraints, students are not permitted on campus before 7:35 AM unless they are participating in our site’s PrimeTime Program.


Every Wednesday, Pershing Middle School has an extended window of time from 12:44-1:20 PM where students can seek individual help from a classroom teacher or visit the library for homework help.

The expectation is any student who has a C or lower in any class will attend office hours weekly until all grades are a B or higher.  Office hours is a great opportunity for students to get the extra support they need and we encourage families to have their student take advantage of this opportunity.


PrimeTime is an extended day childcare program offered through a partnership between the YMCA and SDUSD. Pershing's PrimeTime Program runs 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM. CLICK HERE to learn more about the PrimeTime program, including 2023-24 enrollment information or call (858) 229-2649.   Space in PrimeTime is limited so we encourage you to sign up early.
