Students deal with switch in finals schedule

Alyssa Kelley, People Editor

   Final days have been switched around, and 4th and 5th period finals will now take place on Thursday instead of Friday. 

   The switch is happening due to transportation issues. Late start on Thursday sets the bus schedule back 30 minutes. If they were to continue with hours 6th, 7th and 8th on Thursday, the elementary route would be missed. 

“Bus routes are set in stone in the morning,” said Jim Parker, East’s Principal. 

   Another concern is tardies that may occur on Thursday. According to Parker, Thursday is East’s biggest tardy day out of the week. He is encouraging students to do their best to get to school on time.
