(Sorry I had to put this in two comments because my first comment was too long and gocomics wouldn’t let me post it.) Using this, I can safely assume that this is taking place as they are walking to their class at the very beginning of the day. We also see a poster that isn’t fully shown in the panel. All we can see is “Lat Clu Meet”. It’s pretty obvious that this says “Late Club Meet”, this most likely means that Nate will be staying after school to be reviewing the newspaper on this day. But how late? Well I may just have the answer to that inquiry as well. Most after school clubs in middle school last about 1 hour after school. This just so happens to be around enough time to finish reviewing a newspaper if you are very quick. The average is around 3 hours, but there’s a solution for that. In panel one, Nate says that he signed up for “a” reviewer for the school paper, not “the”, “a”. This means that there are multiple reviewers for the school paper. There are most likely around 5, which would be enough to review a newspaper in an hour sufficiently.
