As we all know, school starts at around 7:30 in the morning. To many students at the school, this time is a problem for them. Many of students see this time as too early for them for many reasons. Athletes and students participating in after school extracurricular activities do not have the luxury of time, especially when their practices and activities last until the nighttime, and it becomes hard to balance schoolwork. When some students try to participate in high level, or AP classes, they find it increasingly difficult to find a good amount of sleep because of homework. Some students end up not going to bed until midnight or even later, just so that they can maintain their good grades. Many students have to wake up within five or six hours instead of at least eight hours, leaving them sleep deprived. This could lead to low productivity in school, and an overall worsening of health. Many members of school sports teams say that it’s incredibly hard for them to balance school, sports, and sleep. Starting the school day by at least an hour later can make a significant difference in people’ s sleep. This can also increase grades in school, leading to a higher average for the school and making the school look even more appealing than it already is. Overall, beginning school at 8:30 can help many students and athletes who desire to both persevere in school as well as their respective athletic programs and after school clubs and extracurricular activities.
