Bergenfield High School is renowned for it’s outstanding academic performance and continues to achieve it’s goal every year.

Ever since the beginning of the 20-21 Academic School Year, students were conditioned to follow a schedule consisting of five periods, following pandemic regulations concerning virtual and hybrid learning.

It has recently been discovered that the school plans on advocating the normal, 7-period schedule, ending at 3:00 PM. Though, this poses a major concern for students as well as their respective families. Given only a brief notice about the change, students who participate in differing activities as well as those in the workforce would have an uneasy transition in complying to a latter-day schedule. The addition of the extra hours into the academic schedule for the year 20-21 could possibly interfere with student’s responsibilities within the time slot of 12:26 - 3:00 PM. Dramatically transitioning within the few days notice would not be viable, as students and family members were only informed that this academic year would comply to a half day schedule.

 

In compliance with other factors, an increasing number of students have reported to experiencing visionary discomfort, headaches, and migraines from the prolonged exposure to such devices. Maintaining the half day schedule for the remainder of the year would be beneficial, and no drastic measures would have to be conducted by students participating in pandemic and family related efforts.
