Dues to last Monday's unexpected day off of school, it now means that if there is one more snow day than we well be getting Saturday school. This could be very bad for children or teachers who would have plans on that day. Many AMS students have verbally expressed their concern for having to potentially attend school on a Saturday.
Many solutions have been brought up in an article on Public School Review. Many students agree that all Saturday School does is adds to the stress of school, while simultaneously taking away the time we have with friends and family. There are pros, as some students and teachers say that these make up days take stress off and give up more time to work on school work. Whether this is good or bad, here are some solutions we can take. One way we could solve this is to add school days to the end of the year; at first this sounds like a great idea but a problem that arises with this is if you have already scheduled your summer and cant go to school those days. A second option is always to lengthen the days of school for a certain period of days. This could be good but it can also harm people and their time to do homework. Finally, what I believe is the best option, is to take out some holidays. This could be great because it doesn't mess with the weekend or the summer.
I believe that though snow day make ups are terrible to sit through and can take away from the weekend, it doesn't happen often and other solutions have their cons as well. So, it might be better to get them over with than have to deal with it by paying with your holidays or summer. What are your thoughts?
