Does your kids school have early dismissals one day of the week?

Posted by   + Show Post
I grew up in a school district where Fridays were always early dismissal. Usual class was 9am-330pm but Friday we got out at 1pm.
I now do my practicum in the next district over and they don't get early dismissal. I grew up thinking it was common practice but now I'm not too sure. So does your kids school get early dismissal?

Nope never even heard of such a thing!!!  So glad, our school district doesn't believe in half days except for the last day of the year. 

Such a disservice for the children do you realize that means they lose about 3wks of school a school year.  How very very sad.

My daughter gets out an hour and a half early on Wednesday's allowing us girl time before "our boys" ( dh and DS) come home. My son goes to school 1/2 hour later on Wednesday's giving me a little time with just him.

My dd's school gets out early on Thursday, 1:06 instead of 2:06.

I have no clue why other than my thoughts that teachers nowadays can't stay late to do meetings, grade papers, and w/e else they used to do on thier OWN time back in my day.

We had half days every other Friday. So we would just go for morning classes and go home at lunch. I don't know what they do here, and I will be homeschooling anyways.
