Have Students in Hillsborough County Schools? Check Out Their New Bell Schedule for Next Year…

  • 6:03 am Wednesday, October 18th, 2017 by Danielle

The Hillsborough County school board has approved new bell times for school next year.

Here’s what it looks like…

Many parents with younger children aren’t too thrilled with the idea of an earlier start time.

Some high school kids are also upset, saying the new times don’t leave them with much time for work and other after school activities…

What do you think?
