Should Barrington change school start times?

Should school start times change? I think they should.

If you have to get to school at 7:45 and you are tired when you get to school you could always go to sleep earlier.

If you get out of school at 4 then you have to do all your homework and activities in a very short amount of time. If you get out earlier you have more time to do homework and other stuff, activities, sports etc.

I think the first through third grade schools should start at 8:45 and end at 3:20. Hampden Meadows [grades 4 and 5] should start at 8:15 and end at 3. The middle school [6 to 8] should not change.

I think this for many reasons. One reason is because in schools for younger kids they get less homework and they need less time to do it unlike the middle school students who get more and need more time to do it. Another reason I think this is the youngest kids need the most sleep and should be able to sleep in later.
