I think it is safe to say that the recent stairwell changes were made with good intentions, with that said, I believe it is also safe to say this recent change has, unfortunately, had the opposite effect of helping and is instead further inconveniencing students. The problem that persists is that of excessive traffic in the hallways, but now with the added problem of needing to go well out of your way to get to your class. This can cause many tardies that would have otherwise been unwarranted and of course, the shortened bells are not helping this problem either. While I do not have a solution to the problem at this present time, I would at least like to bring this to attention.
