New Schedule Released

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! On the first day of school this year, it was announced that 75 minutes would be added to the school week district wide. Now, the schedule for the 2017-2018 school year and onward has been released after much speculation. The most notable differences are:

  • First bell rings 5 minutes earlier.
  • Tuesday and Thursday are the only days to have homeroom.
  • Tuesday and Thursday also end 10 minutes later than Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Many students advocated for longer lunch periods and a later start to the school day, but to no avail.

Released by Superintendent Dr. Thomas Hagerman the exact schedule is as follows:

On the bright side, current Scarsdale high school seniors are grateful that they will graduate before the new schedule is enacted. Our best wishes go out to the current juniors, sophomores, and freshmen!

    I can speak for all students when I say classes starting earlier and ending later are gonna worsen stress and lower the amount of sleep you say we need and dont get in this graph: https://i2.wp.com/shsmaroon.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Screen-Shot-2017-01-10-at-4.38.38-PM.png

    And no one wants homeroom if it means 10 more minutes of the school day, and the fact that we have 25 minutes for lunch is absurd when inmates have 30-35 and a typically job at least has 30 minutes and some of the time an hour. You says you try to reduce stress and that students need to sleep more, but these changes and more changes like this to come will make this impossible. Don’t set impossible goals for your students if you have no intention to support them
