Students share what they do after school on Early Release days


The early release schedule will be taking place on Nov. 11, 2020, Feb. 10, 2021, March 10, 2021, and April 14, 2021.

On the second Wednesday in six months of the school year, students are released early from school so that faculty members can gather for professional development or staff meetings.
For students, dismissal is at 1 p.m., so they have 66-minute classes and no PRIDE Time, then two hours to do something other than being in school, like normal.
Here are just some things that students do during early release days:
“On early release days, I will usually get something to eat with my friends and just hang out after school. I do enjoy early release days because it is nice to have a break.” -junior Leah Legleiter
“I go home and do nothing. I enjoy early release days because it is a small break in the middle of the week.” – junior Savanna Wellbrock
“Usually on early release days, I go home and practice guitar or play video games. I enjoy early release days because it gives me more free time to do what I want.” -sophomore Philip Veatch
“I love to sing and dance after school after I get all my homework done. I love early release days because it gives us more of a chance during the week to get things done, plus we have more time to see our friends as much as with can with COVID.” -freshman Brooke Leiker
“One thing I do after early release days most of the time is to go spend time with some of my friends or just sit at home and watch Netflix. I do enjoy having early release days because I get the rest of the day to get caught up on school and get all my homework done or just to get to sit at home and relax.” – freshman Dezarae Schmidt
