School is back! Several area schools have been changing around schedules to prevent tardiness. At least one local school has decided to start later (8:30am) to help kids get to school on-time. They’ve tried opening EARLIER in the past, thinking that if kids got out earlier they would have more time to re-charge for the next mornings’ classes. Guess it didn’t work (shocker).

A program called GetSchooled is promoting a great, unique way to get your kids out of bed. Once you sign up you’ll receive wake-up calls from popular hip hop artists and groups like Mindless Behavior, The OMG Girlz, Big Sean and Sean Paul!
