T​.​J. Haws started this petition to McHenry High School Administration

The start time for McHenry high schools right now is 7:35 a.m. Starting school this early has caused students to not obtain the recommended 8 hours of sleep each night. This can cause students to be mentally exhausted throughout the entire school day, which leads to lower academic performance in these students, as well as lower mental and physical health. Students not receiving enough sleep can also lead to health issues in the future, such as being overweight, using drugs more often, and drinking alcohol. If the administration were to push back the daily start time to 8:30 in the morning, we could see a large improvement in academic scores, as well as improvement in students mental and physical health.
