Comment on What happens at Amish schools in the summer… by Mary Yoder.
Yes the Amish use the bells. Every time recess is over the bell rings and the children go Groan… and march to the schoolhouse to be sure and meet the few minute deadline they have to be in their seats. Most of them are not allowed to dawdle and visit when they reach the door.
I went to an Amish school and do know this is a fact. The bell is not used to call them from their homes like a church bell, but to get the children inside.
