As of MP2, this is our 3rd schedule we have had to follow within less than 3 months. Our schedules have been extending without any of our input. This puts us students in an uncomfortable situation, as we have important responsibilities planned using the previous versions of the schedule. Our voices are being heard only through the staff, which in my case only two teachers have prompted us for any input at all. This has gone too far and needs to be addressed. 

"Students never get notified until last minute but many of us already have obligations outside of school that we have to deal with. Especially with the pandemic many people Iike including myself already are stressed beyond anytime we were before. On top of that teachers give more work then previous years. The school has never once asked for any input on the students behalf. Most of us are willing to listen but the school MUST listen when we say most of us mentally can’t take much more and DO NOT have time." - Brydon Bullock

"I only one of my six teachers supported this schedule change outwardly in class. From what I have heard, this is a change pushed for solely by administration in order to stop kids from working their jobs during school hours. Rather than dealing with the students breaking this rule directly, this schedule change ruins extracurricular activities for all out of district students and removes the concept of actual office hours for private one on one instruction. I have used these hours multiple times and I appreciate the privacy in order to talk about grades, ask questions that only apply to me or my work, and to casually get a better grasp of topics from my teachers without the stress of lecture learning. By removing these hours, I can't guarantee I can reach my teachers outside of class anymore. I play football and therefore cannot meet with them directly after school, and it is unfair of me to expect them to meet with me as late as I am available at 6:30 pm. It's acceptable fair for administration to move this stress onto the teachers and the students without addressing students at all about this." - Luke Chrampanis

"Terrible. Absolutely terrible decision. Do they not realize that the lives of students don't solely revolve around school? This is not an easy time we're living in, and the board makes these decisions that affect the time of their students without even consulting the students. We have actual and individual lives to attend to. We have jobs to attend to to earn money, we have siblings to take care of because our parents are working their jobs. We have extracurricular activities to attend to. Making these office hours mandatory when the purpose of them is to have one on one private confrontations between teachers and students who are actually failing and need it. Applying this to all students is well intentioned, but it casts a blind eye to the students that have actual lives to attend to. A majority of the students don't have the time or mental capacity to attend to something that is meant to be optional and is meant to be there if a student really needs it. I don't agree with this decision at all. No other school does it the way RBR does it. It's embarrassing. Terrible." - Paul Duncan

"I live out of district and don’t get home until 1:15. This gives me no additional time to eat, etc. I have a job to support myself financially as well as many other students being that we are in an economic distress. I do not have time to change my schedule every 2 weeks without notice. This is unacceptable to say the least. Many of my peers have to take care of their siblings after school and simply cannot sit on a computer for an additional hour or so doing ‘busy work’ when they have obligations. Due to the fact that we haven’t had regular classes since last March, many seniors are behind from back work of applying to college and creating a portfolio. The stress from the state of our country combined with the stress of school work is no doubt going to have mental health consequences on students. The additional work is unacceptable. MANY STUDENTS ARE ALREADY FALLING BEHIND. CONFIRMING THIS CHANGE IN OUR SCHEDULE WILL FURTHER THE GAP BETWEEN STUDENTS THAT ARE STRUGGLING AND STUDENTS THAT ARE NOT. I’m so disappointed in the lack of concern and compassion. RBR PLEASE stop changing out schedule without consultation and input." - Lucy Woodrow
