Sleep Needs and School Start Times

Mar 3, 2020

Some Cape Cod districts have changed school start times, so high school students go to school later and elementary students start earlier. Other districts considered similar changes but elected not to do so. On The Point, we discuss some of the issues surrounding school start times.  We also check in to hear from parents, students, and administrators.  Mindy Todd and Steve Junker host.

Guests on the program are as follows: 

Dr. Greg Parkinson, pediatrician from Falmouth

Scott Carpenter, Superintendent of Monomoy Regional Schools

Patricia DeBoer- Superintendent of Mashpee Public Schools

Meg Mayo-Brown, Superintendent of Barnstable Public Schools
