It’s About Time to Adjust School Time

By: Mr. Wilson on May 25, 2010
I don't know about you, but I'm a little excited to see LPS finally adjust the school calendar so the semesters end before Christmas and Memorial Day. That adjustment has been discussed since ... well, pretty much forever. I know I rooted for it back in my school days. Middle school and high school teachers were probably adamant that LPS wait until air conditioning was present in every school. Who wants to be locked up with sweaty teenagers all day? Then again, Robbie probably won't go to LPS so it's somewhat of a moot point for our family. Wilson School will be in session 24/7/365. Poor kid.


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

I think it makes sense to end the semester at Christmas break. However, it seems kind of crazy to me to think about starting school on August 10. I would get rid of fall break (who really needs it that soon into the year - you’re coming off a long summer, you’ve had a break at Labor Day and you know Thanksgiving is not far off). I also don’t truly see a need for 3 weeks off at Christmas/New Year’s, but maybe that’s just me.

If the idea is to mirror UNL by having the semester break, then maybe they should figure out a way to mirror the 15 week schedule and get everything done in that amount of time. (And yes, I realize that UNL gets 3 weeks off at Christmas). If they need to add a few minutes on to the day, I think it would be better to cutting summer to simply June/July.

Going back to school August 10 would have royally sucked.
