Students and faculty at Montgomery Blair High School say a delayed start time change intended to allow students to get more sleep has not made much of a difference to their regular days, reports Silver Chips Online.
Senior Charlie Waltz-Chesnaye found that moving the times back has kept him more alert in the morning. “I like it,” he said. “I get more sleep because I go to bed at the same time so I’m not exhausted in the morning.”
Other students were not affected by the change. Sophomore Esther Lee adjusted to set her whole day back 20 minutes. “The time change hasn’t affected me because I just go to sleep later, meaning I get the same amount of sleep,” she said.
