  • School starts at 9 for grades K-5 and runs til 4 for grades 1-5... Half day K is either 9-12 or 1-4 depending on whether they are am or pm... Kids in grades 1-5 get a 30 min recess after their 30 min lunch period.

  • Our state has full day kindergarten. Last year they went to school from 7:45-3. This year, they are changing the hours to 8:25-3:30. This is for all of the elementary schools and elementary grades in the district. They get recess once a day but they normally have a "special" once a day too. This could be PE, art, music, library, etc. This year because of the budget cuts, they are only going to school for 175 days instead of 180 and there are several early dismissal days too.

  • Half day at our school is from 9-11:45 or 12:45-3:30, full day is 9-3:30 but they only have that for children that need some extra help. First grade is from 9-3:30 and they get one half hour recess and a half hour lunch.
