Every year around the beginning of November, Daylight Savings Fall Back takes place and everyone gains an hour of time to their day to make better use of daylight. It starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
When Daylight Savings ends, the sun rises earlier in the morning and sets earlier in the evening. Some people may enjoy this aspect of Daylight Savings.
“I like when it gets dark earlier,” Schuylar Malone ‘24 said.
The teachers, especially those with kids, can also be affected by Daylight Savings.
“I think the hardest adjustment is for my kids who are used to a set bedtime and trying to get them into their new routine, just to do it all over again in the spring,” Carly Winter said.
With Daylight Savings, students have to get acclimated to the feeling of brighter mornings and darker evenings.
“I think Daylight Savings is only good when we gain an hour,” Sophomore Lily Davis said. “I think when Daylight Savings makes us lose an hour, it is a waste of time.”
