Do early school start times put students' health at risk? One study says yes


Most mornings, Albert Durazo notices that his 15-year-old son, Caleb, is tired.

The sophomore at Segerstrom High School in Santa Ana wakes up at 6 a.m. – then hits the snooze button for an extra half-hour – to get to school by 7:55, when the first bell rings.

“He’s pretty lethargic in the morning,” Durazo said of his son. “It takes him a while to get into gear.”

But once a week, the father of three sees something different. On Mondays, Segerstrom High doesn’t start classes until 9:30 a.m. This means an extra hour of sleep for Caleb and a more relaxed beginning to his day.
