The Current View: Tuesday Schedule

Last week the West Bend High Schools announced that the schedule on Tuesdays will be adjusted to ensure students receive the proper number of instructional minutes. The new schedule starts March 6.

How do you feel about the elimination of early release on Tuesdays?

Personally I don’t think it makes that big of a difference, it’s only 20 minutes. But I’d like to know how this was overseen, because it’s kind of a big thing, how many minutes you go to school. So how did we not realize this earlier?”
Libby Willkomm, West junior

I just find it funny that it’s taken all these years to figure out that they’ve been illegally letting us out 20 minutes early every Tuesday.”  
Lindsay Kramer, East junior

I don’t understand because the Germantown School District, number one, got a week more on their winter break. And number two, they have three built-in snow days. Yet we are getting more minutes in our schedule, even though we go to school more days.”
Jacob Wilke, East senior

“It’s not a big deal, because I get to eat lunch later, and when I get home I’m not hungry because I have first lunch. And another thing is when I take the bus home I had to wait about 20 minutes (under the old way).”
Dylan Held, West sophomore

“I’m not too bothered by it, but I know a lot of other people are. But it doesn’t bother me that much, the extra 20 minutes a day is really nothing. I’d rather have that than add days on at the end of the year.
Grace Miller, West senior

“It doesn’t really affect me.  I mean, I’d rather have the schedule change than have an extra day, or a couple of extra days (of school).”
Rebecca Ashburn, Pathways senior
