So its now almost November, DD has been in school since the beginning of August. This week a letter was sent home saying nap time is being cut from one hour to just 30 minutes and both recesses were being cut by 10 minutes for AM and 5 minutes for the PM recess. I'm okay with the changes in recess length, but the nap time changes bugs me.
30 minutes just isn't very long at all. By the time they get all the children laid down and quitened down its time to get them back up. I understand some kids do not need a nap time in Kindergarten, but others (my DD for instance) does still need that little bit of rest time.
It helped her get through all her after school activities and she wasn't a monster by the time she got home from being over worked. Her schedule right now has her getting done with everything at 5 pm (she has cheer practice 3 times a week and tutoring once a week) her only free day to catch up on sleep is Wednesdays since they have an early release. I can't get my money back if I pull her from cheer and we forked out a pretty good bit for her uniform and cheer camp already.
Several other parents aren't happy with this either, so my question is:
Is this a subject worth appealing to the school board over?
