A student returns to Kenosha School Board meeting asking for; longer recess


A Kenosha Unified School District student returned to the school board meeting last night ( Monday, April 26 ) asking again for a longer recess!

Ronan Roochnik first went to a school board meeting in November 2020 asking for an extra 10 or 15 minutes to be added to the current 15 minute recess.

“I’m here to talk about recess again, I see that you haven’t done much about what I said last time when it comes to changing anything,” Roochnik said at Monday’s meeting.

The 4th grader said he found research that showed kids have better grades and improved mental health with longer recess.

No word on a response from the school board....yet.
