Later start time working well

Posted: Sunday, February 14, 2010

The later high school start time this year is working very well for many students.

I am a Juneau-Douglas High School junior who is active with theater. The extra hour and 15 minutes of sleep in this year's schedule has allowed me to keep my health and sanity.

I understand the perspective of those active in sports that was articulated in a recent letter to the editor by my fellow student, Evan Gross. However, the current schedule allows classes to be taken over eight periods beginning at 8 a.m., giving more flexibility than the old schedule. I hope the district will not return the schedule to the way it was.
