Sleep: What Students and Families Need to Know

Everyone knows what it feels like to try to get through the day if you haven’t had enough sleep. For students, that can mean having trouble learning because of difficulty concentrating, solving problems, or remembering. Sleep is a time for your brain to repair cells and build new pathways, which is critical for learning.

As part of our mental health strategy over the 2019-20 school year, we’ll be providing teachers with information and tools to help teach students about:

  • the importance of sleep for health and learning
  • how to get enough sleep

Sleep, along with nutrition, stress management, exercise, and positive social connections, are all connected to positive mental health.
