On August 22nd the school day changed, getting out 25 minutes sooner than last year. Different, yes, but how to students feel about the change?

Camry Granacha, who lives in the town of Thayne, said, “I wake up at 6:30 am, and I ride to school with my friend, but I get picked up at 7:30 A.M. which is the same time the bus leaves the Thayne school.

Etna resident Hannah Brylinski said, “I wake up at 5:45 am. for school, and I have been lucky enough to have older friends that drive me to and from school.”

Torrie White wakes up at 5:55 am. Early rising does not affect  her that much. “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 don’t have to leave as early.” 

Emily Dana is one of those living in Afton who proves White right. “I have to wake up at 6:30 am, and no, the schedule has not affected me,” said Dana. 

The new bus schedule for this year hasn’t affected everybody, but don’t expect students north of Thayne to love it.
