New Year, New Schedule
Updated: Feb 19, 2021
We are starting a new year with several changes, especially in our schedules. The school has made big changes for this new start since more than half of the students will now go in person and only a small percentage will stay online. The new schedule seeks to prevent less contact between the students and help the school to be less crowded. How will this be accomplished?
First of all, students from 7th to 12th grade, students will rotate two weeks at school and then two weeks online. These grades will further be divided into two groups. The first group will be eighth grade, ninth grade, and tenth grade; the second group, seventh grade, eleventh grade, and twelfth grade. The only grade that will always stay at school will be sixth grade because it’s the grade with fewer quantity of students.
I asked some of my friends what they thought about the new schedule and the answers were very divided. Some of them think it’s a very good idea because, if they want to go to the beach for a week, they can go and they could still attend school online. Others said that this change will mess with their sleeping schedule a little since for two weeks you have to wake up early and then for the following two weeks you can wake up a little late.
All in all, with so many changes we have already experienced in 2020, this one is not that big a deal. Besides, many students may have gotten used to staying at home already. At least now we can get a little bit of both worlds! Wherever you are, though… stay safe!
