With only four minutes in between classes students are bound to be late because there is not enough time to do everything that students need to do between classes.

“No, we don’t have enough time to go to the bathroom, get a drink, go to your locker and socialize,” said Kira Lang, a seventh grader.

Other people disagree, pointing out that most students are not tardy. “Yes, students do have enough time because, they almost always are on time,”  said Krista Dodds, ELA teacher.

Students feel pressure to make it on time to class because they don’t want to be tardy, or receive courage violations, but they need to have their books, assignments, and needs met before getting to class.

“No students do not have enough time. It’s ridiculous,” said Justin Hu, 7th grade student.
