Restricted Logon Hours
Scaffolded time restrictions are in place to support the overall well-being of students. Research shows that the blue light from electronic screens can reduce or delay the body's production of melatonin, which can hinder a person's ability to fall asleep. Blue light can also shorten the amount of time people stay in rapid-eye movement (REM) and slow wave sleep. These two types of sleep are directly linked to cognitive functioning during the day. While we are very excited to be able to provide these resources to students, we also take the responsibility that comes with these tools very seriously
- Elementary students’ access is restricted from 9:00 pm-6:00 am.
- Middle school students’ account access is restricted from 11:00 pm-6:00 am.
- High school students do not have time restrictions.
