However they open the doors at 7:45 for breakfast, kids start going up a little after 8.

Aftercare is 2:20 to 6pm (just as an addendum)

Re: What are your elementary school hours?

OK so I see it's a mix of starting in the 8 am range and the 9 am range.

We used to be 915 to 315. Which to me, for little kids, was a reasonable time.

We had some schools close in our district and they redid the start times of the schools.
I wasn't' aware of this but there are early start and later start elementary schools. I am assuming because of buses and the need to stager the start times so the buses could accommodate all the elementary schools in the district.

Our school is now an "early start" school- which means 830 am to 230 pm.

It didn't seem so bad when they first told us, but the bus is now coming at 8 am on the DOT. The school is only 5 min away but the bus shows up at 8 am on the dot. (last year he would show up closer to 15 min from start time- so close to 9 am). This is a new driver and a new route I guess.

this morning she almost missed it. Had to run down the block to catch it



She's tired. I have to wake her each morning.
She also used to have time to ease into her day, eat a leisurely breakfast, take her time getting ready, watch a little TV.

Now it's rush, rush rush. Add to that, this is now in the midst of my getting ready for work time and it's a madhouse!
The new timing is just awful for our household and me getting out the door myself.

I guess we just have to adjust to the new schedule, but I just felt it was kind of early for the younger kids, kwim?
I read a study once that super early start times - like in HS where kids are starting at like 7 am- are linked to much poorer performance in school.
I just feel like schools start earlier and earlier. I see HS kids outside at 630 am waiting for the bus- when it's still dark out in the winter. It's insane IMO. There is no need for them to be home at 130 or 2 pm. I feel like a later start and end would be better no?

Anyway, vent over.
I see that we are not the only ones with an earlier start. I swear I thought we were like the only school that was starting elementary at 830 am.

We drive the kids to school as the bus arrives at 7.45 and we need every minute we can get in the morning. Some kids arrive at school at 7.30 am.

ALL change is hard. You think that you will never manage it and that its just plain awful but you know what you will adjust and so will your DD. She may just have to go to bed a little earlier to adjust her natural wake up time. My kids have been exhausted this week as they were going to bed so late during the summer. I implemented an earlier bed time last night and they both slept well and were awake before me this morning.

We get clothes out the night before, make sure the lunch boxes are clean and ready to go, make sure we have their snacks in the cupboard and ready for packing, check for their specials so if they have library etc their book is already in their back pack.

You WILL adjust...it just takes time.Chat Icon

Thank you!
Yes, we need to get into a groove.
I have been instituting a more strict (and earlier) bed time with her since school started, knowing about the earlier schedule.
I also need to get up earlier myself, to get myself in order, but it's so hard because I am SOOOO not a morning person and getting up is just a huge huge effort for me. It's like I'm in a coma . Chat Icon

I think we just have to work out some kinks and it will be ok.

It just annoyed me that we had to change our school's schedule that everyone was used to.
My district is a real winner, on not just this, but a lot of things.

8:15 to 2:45, HOWEVER, walkers are dismissed at 2:30. Bus riders are getting to bus between 2:30 and 2:45.

I saw your post further down. Can you drop her at school instead of riding the bus? I do that, gives us more time.

My son is in HS and his Boces bus is coming at 6:15 now vs 6:45 when he went to the high school in the morning and Boces in the afternoon. So he is on the bus 1 hour and 45 minutes. NOT happy about that, so I feel you on the changes!

I think our kids might go to the same school lol We had 9:15 that changed to 8:30 thanks to schools closing and redistricting. Now I have to pack lunches the night before and drag kids out of bed. The bus came at 7:55 this morning and we were only just crossing the street. Two other families were running too. We were told to be at the stop half hour early which would be 8am. Yesterday and the day before the driver got lost and was asking the kids where to go. Only K,1 and 2 sit near the front. Anyone that could possible know how to get to school was in the way back of the bus. I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of mornings at the drop off circle from hell this year!

Have you all beat! School is from 7:45 - 2:45. Kids get to the school at 7:30 am. Pre-K through 8th grade school, so it's all grades.

We're 9:20 - 3:20... right now he's in pre-k and it's 8:30-2:30, which works better for me (and him since he's an early riser) to get ready for work, since I start at 9... I have NO idea what I'm going to do next year as far as getting him to school. It's always an adjustment, for everyone involved!

PS - I totally agree that middle school and high school start way too early. I wasn't awake fully till after 1 pm.
