  • only the full-day students. 1/2-day students get out about that time, do they not?

  • Depends on whether it is half day or full day. None of our local half days do, but the full days do of course.

  • The boy I nanny for was in 1/2 day, afternoon kindergarten he got lunch before I put him on the bus, but I did have to pack a snack for him every day. It will be the same for his brother, who starts this year. My daughter, however, has full day kindergarten, and will be either taking a lunch with her every day or getting a lunch at school. She also has the option of breakfast at school as well.

  • I'm worried about lunch for my son...he is starting a full day of preschool this year...he eats when he wants and when he gets up in the morning he often wont eat breakfast...he is going to die from hunger..I guess I'll have to force feed him an egg or something lol! Good luck momma!
