Monday is the first day of school for students in Wyoming, Hamilton and Deer Park, and for many of them, it will be their first time driving to school. Sixteen-year-old Beechwood HIgh School student Hank Birindelli has been driving alone to football practice in Fort Mitchell, but he's making the big leap heading to classes on his own on Monday. His mother works at the school, so they used to come together, but that meant getting up earlier than Hank would have liked. He's excited about getting to sleep in and his freedom, but his mother said she'd miss that bonding time on the way to school. "It's been so fun having Hank ride to school with me in the mornings," said Hank's mother, Shaun Birindelli. "We get to talk and chat so now he'll be coming in on his own. But he's a good driver, so I'm excited for him because I know he likes the independence of being able to drive himself to school."
