Letter: Later start to school day a good ideaThanks for the recent article, "Get Some Sleep," about later start times for high school students. I must say this is a subject I have hoped would come to light before my second child finished at Menlo-Atherton High School.
It makes so much sense. When my daughter was at Hillview her start time was just 30 minutes later and it made all the difference. We had a much easier and more pleasant start to our days.
I know that this is a monumental change for some people but I think we should give it a try. I hope more people will support this idea and help give the kids any advantage we can. I think giving them more sleep is an advantage.
