11. Currently, Fairfax public school buses need to make three runs a day to be used efficiently, so high schools cannot start at the same time as elementary schools. If high schools must either start before elementary and middle schools (at the current 7:20 time) or after elementary schools (at about 9:30 am), which do you believe would be better for your students?

14. One suggestion for helping students wake up is to add time between the 1st and 2nd periods and have juice, bagels, fruit and coffee available around the school. Would you support such a “Take a Break” plan?
