Students at Vista del Lago high school attend Saturday school from 8:00 am to 12:10 pm to recover unexcused tardies and absences.

Many students here at Vista have a large number of tardies and absences, therefore administration is giving a chance out to those students who are willing to come to Saturday school to recuperate their tardies and absences.

Vista del Lago wants to give students the opportunity to attend Saturday School not only to recuperate tardies and absences but to give students another chance for tutoring.

On the other hand, some students such as sophomore Anabel Mosqueda, disagree with Saturday school. She said, “I believe it is such a waste of time because in order to make up for one tardy you are suppose to attend two Saturday Schools.”

Coming to Saturday School is not just about sitting down on a desk waiting for the clock to turn to 12:10 p.m.,  but it is also time being going on to programs like “Shmoop” and “Khan Academy,” which help students attain the skills and knowledge they will bring to class on a regular basis.

Sophomore Lesley Regalado said, “Going to Saturday school is a good opportunity to do homework or get good benefit from going not just sitting down doing nothing the whole entire time.”

Students must be presented the full 240 minutes in Saturday school to gain the credit for it, but the students may be divided into classes throughout the day they will attend two classes for math and two for English. This will help them with their skills and knowledge they have.

Regalado continued, “My point of view is that Saturday School is alright for those who need it and are really trying to make up for tardies and absences.”

A couple of hours with good benefits to come out of it is not as bad as it seems, but if you show up to class and on time you would not have to be dealing with Saturday school at all.

Sophomore Crystal Villarreal said, “I rather go to school everyday than to go to Saturday School.”
