Let Mayfield Secondary School Start at 9:00

Mental health is increasingly becoming a focus in secondary schools as more and more teenagers are diagnosed with disorders like anxiety and depression. Yet still, Mayfield Secondary School's unusually early start time requires its students to board their buses as early as 6:30 in the morning. Why Mayfield has among the earliest start times in Peel I cannot understand, for we have the largest percentage of bussed in students, and with our regional program, many of these students are being bussed in from far away. Recently, a study has proven Ontario high schools are showing remarkably low levels of improvement; and as a Mayfield student, I think this is a good way to start changing that. You cannot expect a student to perform at their best when they can't even get a good night's sleep.
