3 thoughts on “‘It’s a Disgrace’: Parents Speak Out on Proposed Earlier Start Time for Elementary Schools

  1. Who is in charge the student or the parents
    Why can’t the high school kids park their cellphones at night where they can’t be used and get to bed at a decent time so they can get a good night sleep

  2. When I was in school: Our starting times were 8:30 to 2:30 then it changed to 8:15 to 2:15, Stayed that way until the 70’s Saxe and NCHS started at 8:15 to 2:15 and Center South West and East started at 9:00 to 3:00 That seemed to work out just fine. Think about those hours.

  3. Other towns have already made this change and others are following suit so why is it so difficult for New Canaan? My only son was beyond miserable during middle school. He was at breaking point despite being in bed by 9pm. The combination of growing pains, sleep deprevation and being given a ton of homework daily was devastating to watch. He would walk to the bus stop in the pitch dark along a busy road. This is about our children getting the quality rest they deserve in order to perform well at school. New Canaan needs to make a change before it’s too late because not all children can cope.
