Long school days takes a toll on students

My day starts at 5:30 a.m. and sometimes even 5:00 a.m. On most days, I don’t get home until 4:30 – 5:00 p.m. since I live 30 minutes outside of town. For me to be able to ride the bus and get to school on time, I have to get up early in the morning to get ready and be at the end of my road to catch the bus.

Many other kids in the district are going through the same thing. They have to take a long bus ride to school just because they live outside of town.

We should not have to get up and have a 12-hour day away from home. This leaves less time to do things like chores, homework, and spend time with family when we are at home. I feel like there’s a way to make bus rides better for students by having less stops per bus, separating country and town stops, or even starting school later.

There would be so many benefits by changing the busing system. Students would have more time to sleep and be more energized at school. It can also improve family relations by letting people get home at a reasonable hour and visit with family.

Long bus rides take a toll. It only gets harder when bus riders have to get up early and drag themselves to school five days a week. It can make them more reluctant to go to school as it becomes more and more of a chore. By fixing the bus ride system, students have that extra half hour to sleep instead of making them get up so early to catch the bus.
