Twenty extra minutes in the morning definitely makes up for the twenty minutes you decided to stay up later. Don’t you hate hitting snooze your alarm ten times in the morning? Now with school starting twenty minutes later you shouldn’t have to! Arriving to school with ninety seconds left for the late bell to ring is not a smart idea, but a lot of people still do it. There’s many reasons why people get to school late and sometimes you really have no choice but to say “I should’ve just left a couple minutes earlier and I wouldn’t have been tardy.”
With a new schedule change many people are still confused to when school starts and when it ends. Waking up for school still seems to be hard for people. Since school starts a bit later, people are in a mindset where they think they can stay up later. “I still stay up late and wake up barely on time sometimes for school.” said Junior, Ivan Montoya.
After a long day of classes and being around people you like and some you may not like, long days sure do get exhausting. Being used to getting out at 3:05 p.m. thinking about getting out at 3:30 p.m. isn’t the best feeling ever. Some people have shorter attention spans than others therefore if it’s been a long day, getting out of school later just makes everything worse.
Overall, the schedule change at HRV school has effected a lot of people but definitely not everyone. Having a set schedule on when to wake up for school is something good. Also, knowing when school starts and what time classes start and end is something to get used to, with this new bell schedule. With school starting twenty minutes late and ending twenty-five minutes later, there definitely is pros and cons to this dilemma.
