Woodside HS still starts period 1 at 8am, and 0 period at 7am. When will that change to the plethora of national recommendations to start school after 8:30am, like many other local schools?

M-A period 1 starts at 8:45am.

I see the students are debating it. Is the administration?

As a parent with one in middle and one starting HS soon, both at the same exact time, I'm wondering how I will coordinate that, and how my kids will get enough sleep with the massive volume of homework they have. A later HS start time would help, because teen's biological clock do not allow them to easier to fall asleep earlier. They already are deprived of electronics by 9pm and still toss and turn until almost 11pm.
