Daylight Savings

Daylight savings at Dublin High may affect students’ performances in school due to the new sleeping schedule. On Sunday, November 3, everyone had to adapt to this sleeping schedule which added another hour of sleep.

“I didn’t really feel a change in my school performance, but this extra hour of sleep was much needed,” says Jake Minton, DHS junior.

“I feel more energized and ready at school,” Luke Legins, a DHS senior states.

There are opposing ideas about this new sleeping schedule, some people may argue that this extra hour of sleep is a blessing or some may argue that its a burden on their academic performance.

“Daylight savings has affected my life positively,” Christian Amador, DHS freshman states.

According to Amador, November 3 was beneficial for him because he saw an increase in his academic performance. Maybe the DHS administration and student body can conclude that daylight savings is the time when a student’s academic performance thrives.

Even though there may be an extra hour of sleep it may not enhance academic performance, according to Kea White and Jake Minton.

“Doesn’t even feel like theres been a difference in my sleeping schedule,” Kea White, DHS junior states.

But then again, people may adapt to the annual sleeping schedule and not allow it to affect their lives in an positive or negative way. You could benefit from an extra hour of sleep.

This annual changing of time may be unnoticeable to certain people, it benefits those who take advantage of it. Especially for those who could use it for studying or catching up on some missed sleep.
Daylight savings could save DHS students’ academic performances if used wisely (i.e. taking advantage of an extra hour of sleep to be energized for the next day). Daylight savings claims to save Amador’s school career and Luke Legins, but some people, such as Kea White and Jake Minton, beg to differ.
