Is 7:10 a.m. too early to start high school? | Letter

Northshore School District (NSD) has the earliest high-school bell time of any district in the region. Early bell times mean teens get inadequate sleep, which leads to poorer academic performance and health. Parent Advocates for a Later Start (PALS) http://www.facebook.com/groups/112424038826467/ is currently working toward achieving a later start time for high-school students in NSD.

Please sign PALS’ online petition today to help reach the goal of presenting 500 signatures by the March 13 meeting NSD School Board meeting.
