At the beginning of the school year, which started on August 22nd, the times for when school has started and ended has changed. Last year school would start at 8:05 A.M. and go till 3:45 P.M. This year however, the time for school starts at 8:05 A.M. and goes till 3:20 P.M. Of course this has a lot of impact for some students who can’t drive yet and who do not live in Afton. Some students who do not live in Afton either have to wake up early to get to the bus or get up early to drive themselves to school. Sophomores Camry Granacha, Hannah Brylinski, Torrie White, and Emily Dana all live on separate sides and in different towns of the valley have said whether or not this schedule has impacted them.


Camry Granacha who lives in the town of Thayne says “I wake up at 6:30 A.M. and I ride to school with my friend, but I get picked up by her at 7:30 A.M. which is the same time the bus leaves the Thayne school, which is where I would usually get on the bus.”

Hannah Brylinski who lives in Etna says “I wake up at 5:45 A.M. for school, and I have been lucky enough to have older friends that drive me to and from school.”

Torrie White who lives in Thayne said “I wake up at 5:55 A.M. and it doesn’t affect me that much since I’m used to it, I’ve been doing it my whole life. And it’s different if you’re in Thayne I guess, if you’re in Afton you won’t have to leave as early.” 

Emily Dana who lives in Afton said that “I have to wake up at 6:30 A.M. and no, the schedule has not affected me.” 


Even though some people think that the new bus schedule doesn’t have a good impact for those who can’t drive and live in different towns. Clearly we can see that the new bus schedule for this year hasn’t affected anybody. It doesn’t really matter what town you’re from.
