Many changes have been made this school year; one of which being the school times being moved. Now, we get to wake up an hour later and get home a half hour later. Students have some strong opinions on waking up later and staying a little later.
Jaylinn Morel, among many students, likes the new school times. “I like coming to school later. It’s not a big difference. I’m not really nervous about this year.” Students agree that waking up a little later seems better because they are more awake and readier to learn. Students are more likely to stay alert instead of sleeping during class.
New student Daisy Granados also agrees that the time change is a positive change. “It’s better to start later. It isn’t a big deal. It seems much better to stay a little longer.” Students agree that it’s good that we start school an hour later and stay twenty minutes later. It seems a little late to get out of school compared to last year, but students say they don’t mind it at all.
Freshman Michael Gomez says that it isn’t much of a change for freshmen. “I’m used to this. Last year, in middle school, our schedule was like how it is now. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing to be at school.” Last year, middle school started at 9 am, and now high school starts at 8:30. It’s only a half hour adjustment for the freshmen, and they don’t seem to mind it at all.
