Newsletter No. 14

December 17, 2018

We know it's a tough night...


But hopefully you can come even for just half an hour during the public comments section in the beginning to show your support! Bring children if you have to, we know it's hard on a Monday night, especially right before the holidays.

7pm in the Wagner Room at New Canaan High School

We hope to see you there! And if you can't make it, please take five minutes instead to send the Board a quick email to let them know that:

a) the scientific evidence is overwhelming that chronic sleep loss is dangerous for our teens.
b) the longer they delay on moving forward, the more they are putting our teens at risk.


Forward our petition to five friends! Our goal is to get signatures from 50% of the families in New Canaan schools and we are halfway there. Talk to your friends, parents of your kids’ teammates, and your neighbors about why later start times are important. We are educating the public one person at a time and every conversation matters! 


Write to Our Administrators!

We have made it VERY EASY for you to write to the Superintendents and all of the BOE members at one time. Just click HERE to get to our Email Campaign. With just one click you can let all of the members know your feelings. We even have a pre-written version to make it even easier!!

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, the Seattle school district moved the official start times for middle and high schools nearly an hour later, from 7:50 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. This was no easy feat; it meant rescheduling extracurricular activities and bus routes. But the bottom line goal was met: Teenagers used the extra time to sleep in.


This will only take a minute!


Please sign the petition and pass this newsletter on to friends and neighbors.
