They are changing our hours next year to try and coordinate buses more cost-effectively. They are staggering schedules. This year kids were required to be there by 8:00, teachers by 7:45. Next year school will begin at 7:30, teachers arrive at 7:15!!!!!! That's usually when I'm leaving my house. I feel very badly for those with long commutes. The good news is we get out earlier as well. I do a lot of after school activities and it will nice to actually leave before 5:00.
