SAU 19 lengthens Goffstown school days to make up for snow closings
Kristie Curtis, whose son, Eli, is a third-grader at Bartlett Elementary School, said she was in favor of the SAU’s decision.
“I think that’s the best decision to avoid that,” she said.
Melanie Roussel, who has children at Bartlett Elementary School and Mountain View Middle School, said although students might not be happy about the school-day extension, they’ll appreciate it when they get out of school for the summer a few days sooner.
Parent Ryan Simmons also said he is in favor of the decision.
“It’s a great idea. Kids going in and getting out earlier will get them out of school for the summer earlier,” he said.
Alicia Urella, who works as a counselor at the YMCA Allard Center, remembers when her school day was extended in spring 2009.
While she understands the SAU’s decision, her work schedule will be affected because she will lose 15 minutes of time in the morning and in the afternoon because students will be in school.
