When browsing the websites of various schools across the nation, it appears that many of them have passing periods that are just too short and have students running to class. To make it even worse, most of these schools hand out detentions for running to class, and then if the student is late, that would be 2 detentions right there, one for tardiness, and one for running to class. Many junior high schools especially have passing periods as short as 3, and even 2 minutes! Some of these same schools even ban bookbags in the hallways, having books from another class in one class, which causes students to have to go to their lockers during every single passing period. And 2 minutes, and even 3 minutes is simply not enough time, even for a junior high/grade school, for students to go to their lockers, do their combination, open up their lockers, and put stuff in and take stuff out, and go to their next class, especially if it requires a significantly long journey through the school and the locker is out of the student's direct path. 2 and/or 3 minutes is only about enough for a quick and nonstop only trip to the next class.

No sympathy for roly-polys. Maybe the pudgy bastards need to drop a few dress sizes and learn to pick 'em up and put 'em down a little quicker? Move it ladies!

I remember those days in high school when students had five minutes or less to get
To class, if you had classes on the third floor or if you had to use the restroom, it was
Like running a race! I have been out of school for 34 years now and I don't miss it at
All!!!

I agree they don't really give enough time. My daughter says she tries to carry all the books she needs for the day if possible because it is too difficult to get to the locker and then to class on time.

Our high school actually had a smoking lounge area outside..now think about it...they were allowing students to smoke on school grounds..wow that but

we could grab a smoke & still make it to class...these puzzies today just like to complain and text about how they complain..should actually just waste em all and start over..like a modern day no-ahhhs ark for high school..

ahhh...the 70's...!!!!...beautiful..

Memories:
Because of the time between classes students would set their combination locks on their lockers to pull and open.
I enjoyed leaving studyhall with a bathroom pass to spin everyone's lock on the way to and from.
I'z a good kid otherwise???

longer passing periods should be a must. we need more than 5 minutes to get to our classes. my locker is all the way at the bottom of the school and my classes are all the way at the top. I need more time to get to my classes.

Do what my daughter does, pack a backpack with what is needed for a few classes and only visit your locker when you are in the near vicinity. It's called planning and thinking ahead, you should try it.
