There are some things that help early in the morning like (1) Do your homework (2) put your clothes out the
night before, (3) gather your books or whatever you plan to take with you and put it all where you can find them, (4) Get money, notes or papers signed by your parents the night before.
(5) There are back packs with emergency pulls that sound like a siren. (6) Use appropriately and not as a prank for safety's sake.(7) Make your school proud.
It takes awhile to get a routine but that routine will save hours of grief and embarrassment.
