You will spend a lot more time at work when you are out of school. Get used to it now.

I think it should stay the same length. But I think we should change it to 12 in the afternoon to 6 in the evening. It would give us more time to sleep so we would be more rejuvinated. Our brains would be more aware of what is going on and no more dazing off. We could have already eaten lunch before we go to school and then teachers don't have to worry about food all over the place and worrying about kids choking on food. Also it would cut off all complaining about getting up early. Because you should get up around 10 or 10:30 then get dressed do chores eat lunch pack your bag and off to school. It would make everything a lot easier.

I think they should be moved to later also. Then we could be more awake before we go to school. Sometimes kids wake up at 5 just to get ready and catch the bus on time. Then they wait for hours at the school.It is a waste of precious time and sleep for them.

dear Goober Burger,
You may think parents need a break but what about the kids? They need a break to and if school lasts till 7:00 how will they play sports ext.
Also most parents should enjoy spending time with their kids!!!!

Wow! A lot of thought went into that answer and I agree. I teach in a very rural area and some of our children are on the bus before 6am and arent getting home until around 5:30, 6 in the evening already. Maybe if we didnt get out until 6, parents would have the oppurtunity to pick up their children, meet with the teachers, and not have to worry about their kids being at home alone!

I think the school hours should be 9:00am-3:30pm.
That way people can get some good rest to where
they have time to work, because gas is so high.
Also bills are so high.
