Please institute a later start time at Millburn Middle School!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


On Monday, 4/16/18, the Millburn Township BOE tabled a vote on change to school hours at the Elementary Schools and High School in order to allow for public input on this important issue.  However there is no current proposal for a later start time at the Middle School.  Over the past few years there has been serious discussion about later start times at MMS and MHS. 

The research is clear: adolescent wellness would greatly benefit from later school start times!  We therefore ask that the the BOE please institute later start times at Millburn Middle School.
