A virtual start can mean real sleep for students
Every year, 7:30 a.m. seems to come earlier. If that sentiment seems familiar, perhaps you are the parent of a teenager. With three teenagers, the daily gauntlet to get them out the door and to school on time has gotten tougher as they reached middle and high school. This fact hit home when we experienced a two-hour delay this winter, a morning that still stands out as a glorious aberration from our normal, stressful routine. Factors like transportation needs, parents' work schedules, students' work schedules, collective bargaining agreements and afterschool programs all need to be addressed. And all of these factors are politically thorny on some level.
