AMHERST, N.H. (AP) – Parents and students at one New Hampshire high school are considering opening school 30 minutes later to let teens sleep longer.

A survey is being circulated in Amherst and Mont Vernon to help a committee decide whether giving Souhegan High School students more time to sleep is something everyone wants.

The Alternate Start Time Study Group was created in May to consider the benefits of moving the start time from 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. The group is to make recommendations by September.
