As students attending Charles Hebert Flowers High, we are some of the most affected people when the call a two hour delay or two hour early dismissal.
With a two hour delay or early dismissal:
- 1st period lasts 40 minutes
- 2nd period last 45 minutes
- 3rd period lasts 2 hours (including lunch times)
- 4th period 40 minutes.
I spoke to several students who believe that a two hour delay is unnecessary.
“A two hour delay is pointless we cant learn anything in 45 minutes we really just go to school to sit there for 4 hours and leave.”Omari Robinson
” A two hour delay is unnecessary either cancel school for the day or keep it its full length.”– Brianna Greer
I also spoke to a bus driver on the day of a two hour delay to get their thoughts.
“When we open schools late due to weather it doesn’t change the fact that the problems with the roads still remain.”– School Bus Driver
The school feels that the two hour delay process has no positive use. There is no reason to send students to school to not learn.
