mine is in kindergarten. we get home after picking her up around 2:20 (1:20 on mondays), and then she has a snack and goes straight to the computer. i let her play on the computer until 3, and then she does her homework, it takes at most 30 minutes. then she plays outside until dinner is ready, and she goes back outside until shower/bedtime.
just curious what your after school routines are. ours seems to work for us. she is too keyed up to do her homework immediately after walking in the door, but if i wait too long (a few times time has slipped away and she didn't start til 4) then her focus is gone and she complains the whole time and it takes her a whole lot longer to get it done. so 3 seems to be a working compromise thus far.

School gets out at 3:30 but by the time I make it through the pick up line it is normally 3:45 and we get home at about 4. On the way home he does his math practice. When we get home, he will get a snack and relax for about 30 minutes and then he goes outside to play until 6 pm. We have dinner at 6. After that we will play a game, clean up from dinner, and then do our bedtime routine (bath, snack, read, brush teeth, bed).

They are playing with this toy right now. We have already done math, science, and lit. We rode bikes earlier & ate and I think we'll head to Target in a bit. We'll do the remainder of our school day when we get back.

My Son is in kindergarten but the bus doesn't drop him off until almost 4. So he comes in & jumps in the bath first. He relaxes & I give him a snack in the bath too! LOL! Then he's out around 4:30. Then he does his homework. When he's done he'll play until dinner is ready at around 5:30.
