Letter: Extra time in the morning can help families

To the Editor:

With regards to last week’s letter concerning school start times. I just wanted to say that I have taken Mr. Mignano’s advice and have emailed the Board of Education ... to let them know that I wholeheartedly support the change in start times and to encourage them to press on with their implementation of this great idea.

And further to Mr. Mignano’s comments, we also consider ourselves to be good parents. I fail to see how parenting connects with school start times. All I know is the extra time in the morning would be immensely helpful to our family. I hope (and think) that others agree with me. I do not recall reading about the majority opposition that Mignano cites in his letter.
