With some businesses considering four day workweeks, some students and teachers agree that moving to a four day school schedule would be beneficial.

Would you be in favor of a four day week?

Students and teachers have five days of teaching and learning, with two days off. To some, this seems a little off. Harper Kalal, a 9th grader at OFHS, says, “We are at school so much compared to home it seems, and because we’re at school for a whole year, we should get a longer weekend.” One solution might be trying to make the ratio of days as even as possible. This could be seen as a possible four-day school week and three-day weekend. Journalism teacher Ms. DeAtley says she “thinks students would still receive enough instructional time as long as it meets the state requirements.”

Other teachers at Osceola have similar opinions as they think their time will be better spent. Miss Gucci says, “I would be less tired and have a lot more energy for my chickens”. Biology teacher Mr. Simon says, “Having a five-day week helps me to get my lesson plans done, but I would have more time to take care of my family with a four-day week”.

Whether the extra day off would help teachers with things in school or out of school, that time may be helpful. Some students believe that this schedule would be better. Isabella Zuzek, a freshman, says “I wouldn’t be wasting so much time if we had a four-day school week.” Harper Kalal says that “I would have more time to hang out with my friends on the weekends and for longer”. Gianna Rinaldi, a 9th grader, would “love a four-day week because it would give me more free time. Not only that, but it would get me to work harder when I am in school and keep me focused. I would have so much more time to do things I love on weekends.” Rilana Salatandre, a freshman, says that “students would be less drained and less burnt out and it would be good because the stress from school would be released.”

Brooke Lucas shares similar ideas that a four-day school week would be beneficial because “I get to give my mind a longer break before having to do work every day. Additionally, we would get more time with our friends and family.” Senior Sophia Berglund would “like another day to get sleep.”
