What if Noon could be 4:00 PM?

Silly thought experiments arise when one begins to think significantly about designing school schedules; a Sisyphean task that means models for 2019-20 school days are already occupying partially discarded pieces of paper on my desk. Noon may not be at 4:00 PM, but this does not negate the problem that drives the absurdly formulated question. Specifically, students tend to learn better in the morning than in the after NOON. Ergo, it would be ideal if no learning took place after NOON.
