2019-20 Start Times

New Start Times for 2019-20 School Year

New Start Times for 2019-20 School YearWhen the new school year begins, there will certainly be some changes, but new locations for our schools will not be the only changes; we're also going to have some new starting times.

Pediatricians have been suggesting over the past few years that adolescent students are not getting the sleep their bodies require. Sleep researchers say that most teens can’t easily fall asleep until about 11 p.m., and their brains stay in sleep mode until at least 8 a.m. Studies show that adolescents who don’t get enough sleep often suffer physical and mental health problems, an increased risk of automobile accidents, and a decline in academic performance.

With this thought in mind, the Comstock Public Schools will be shifting the starting time for our schools for the 2019-20 school year. Where the elementary schools are concerned, the start and end times will change only slightly. The bigger impact will be seen at Comstock High School. 

Here's a summary of the new start times at our schools:

Comstock High School
