What time does your elementary school age child get home?

My daughter does not get off the bus until 4:30 :(
Just wondering when most other kids get home.

  • Mine gets off the bus at 4:05- used to be 4:20. They start late, not till 9:00 so they get home late.

  • thankfully my dd's bus stop is the first on the route and we live pretty close to her school (just on the other side of the river) so she gets off at 3pm and is home by 3:10pm. its also the first pick up on the route though so we take her to school in the mornings otherwise she'd be on the bus since 7:10am! my 2nd dd is just in 1/2 day Head Start so she's done at 11:30am :)

  • 3:45 (there abouts) She goes to an "early start" school. When my older kids were in elementary they didn't get home till 4:15. They had a "late start" school. (half the elementary schools here start at 8:20 & the other half at 9)

  • About 3:15. They have about 20 minutes on the bus.

    When I was a kid we were at the end of the bus line and didn't get home until over an hour after school got out. I hated being on the bus that long.
