Hilliard 6th, 7th and 8th graders Start TOO Early

Hilliard 6th, 7th and graders start school too early. First bus pick up is 6:04 a.m. For the health and safety of these kids, let's start later.

Why is this important?

There is proven scientific evidence that starting middle and high school before the sun rises is out of sync with the biological clocks of young people (people ages 12-25, which includes young teachers). Many school districts in central Ohio have made the adjustment to school start times for the health and safety of their students, but Hilliard City Schools has not. It is time for that to change.
