Slow Down In School Zones Earlier On Thursday Mornings

 You know how you're only supposed to go 20 miles per hour in school zones during school hours? And you know how Spokane Public Schools has been doing late start on Thursday mornings for about the last 20 years so you got used to driving faster on school zones later on Thursday mornings? Well, you're going to have to break that habit.

According to the Spokesman-Review, there will be no more late start Thursdays; from now on school will start and end at the same time all five days of the week. The schedule change was negotiated between the Spokane Education Association and the district as part of this year’s teacher contract.
