HS Student started this petition to Allentown High School

Allentown High School has come out with a new schedule for students from 8am-12:35pm. With this, there is also a 30 minute break in between 2nd and 3rd period. Talking to some students, the mutual feeling of annoyance is felt. I know it’s nice to sleep in an extra 30 minutes, but not a lot of people want to end an hour later. There are 3 clear cut reasons why this schedule does not work. First, this is just another change in our lives that affects our lives out of school too. There are a handful of students including myself that go to work right after school. This school schedule pushes back the time that we are available to go in, making it very inconvenient to our employers, ourselves, and to our families that might rely on us. The next reason this schedule doesn’t work is that the classes are now an hour long. We know the district is trying to help, but it was working before. Being a student who is enrolled in AP classes, this schedule change was extremely upsetting to me and others that have been asked. We don’t want a full day, we just want it back to the normal for this year. Third, the break in between is going to be counterproductive. Speaking from a student, the break is going to make us bored and lose focus. What we’re asking for in simple terms is to just go back to the normal schedule because this is a lot of change on us and our lives. We just want life to be normal, starting with school.
