Payson High School bagpipe band member Kathryn Smith warms up for the Provo Christmas Parade Saturday, November 24, 2001.

As a student at Bingham High School, I have been a victim of the horrible scheduling of the Jordan School District. I, along with many other students here, are frustrated with school ending for the break so close to Christmas.

Students need a few days before Christmas to get presents, attend parties and spend much-needed time with family. Students should not be jammed with so many things to do and attend school at the same time. Give the kids a much needed break!
