It’s no secret that snow days have been an issue this winter. Stamford High students are particularly concerned, as the last day of school has been unofficially pushed back by more than a week. On Wednesday of last week, which was an early release day, Round Table reporters asked a sampling of Stamford High School students to share their thoughts on the multiple days of school that have been canceled due to weather. 

One student, Senior Brianna Fabiano, raised a very interesting point about students who are taking AP classes when she said, “While the school days are getting pushed back, AP tests don’t move,“ Fabiano said. “Unfortunately for those taking these classes, we are losing valuable time.” Computer Web Design teacher Module Downer said that “it’s very frustrating, not because it cuts into our summer, but because I have to keep changing my lesson plans.” With all the days we have missed, multiple teachers told The Round Table that they are falling behind in their curriculums and are now racing to catch back up in order to meet certain deadlines that haven’t been postponed, such as the AP test.

 There were also some mixed reactions to the snow. Senior Kelly Jagodzinski said, “I have a lot of mixed emotions having so many days off of school.  Since I’m a senior and I’m graduating this year, it’s more frustrating hearing when the last day of school is and about graduation getting pushed back.” For the most part, the senior class didn’t seem too happy about all the missed days.  Senior Jorge Perdomo said, “I find it very obnoxious that school keeps getting pushed back. I believe that for next year Stamford Public Schools should have snow days built into the school calendar to better secure the last day of school.” Tonianne Ferraro agreed with most of the other seniors, saying,  “ Missing all these days of school is honestly pretty annoying. Now that we are graduating this year and it keeps getting pushed back, it’s very frustrating”.

 Senior Krantz Medeus acknowledged the other side of the story – student safety. “I know that Stamford Public Schools is just following protocol and trying to avoid a disaster, Medeus said.  Medeus also referenced the cancellations where snow accumulations was nowhere close to what was expected, and students would have still been able to get to school and home safely. “Even if we didn’t cancel school some of these days there would probably still be whining about it,” Medeus said.
