We have been restoring our cadets sleep/wake cycle which is essential for learning. To do this, we ensure adequate exercise each day, we turn off internet access after lights out, and require students to live without their electronics until they are promoted. We have a strict schedule and require cadets to wake-up by 6:30 am.
One area where we have not always been successful is in limiting cell phone usage at night. Our Cadet Manual specifically prohibits the use of cell phones during nighttime hours and we do restrict access when possible. Parents can help! Major cell phone carriers now allow you to control your child’s access to data at night from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. Please help your child get a good night’s sleep. Thanks!
