Salt Lake City high schools to implement later start times



Salt Lake City, Utah — High schools implement later start times to help reduce sleep deprivation and lower anxiety levels.

According to the Board of Education for the Salt Lake City School District, this year they made the change after looking at studies that show later start times also lead to better emotional stability and increased academic and athletic performance.

East, Highland, Horizante, Innovations, and West High Schools will now start at 8:45am, letting out at 3:15pm.

Parents and students should check the district’s website for a complete list of new start times, as these later start times will impact the start times for middle and elementary schools in the Salt Lake City School District.
