 My son is in 4th grade, said their recess is daily but only for 15 minutes. He said its better than 5th grade, which is only 5 minutes.

How much time does your school age children get for recess?

My daughter is in third grade and she says her recess is 20 minutes. Five minutes sounds more like a bathroom break than recess. I got longer breaks than that in high school.

 That doesn't seem like a lot of time at all, it's been so long but I know we got way more time then that when I was in school

I don't have any idea.  I guess 5 minutes is better than nothing?

I was told yesterday that they're going to have 100 minutes of recess today.  I thought that was  a little extreme, lol

It's probably a 100th day of school thing.

That seems a little low. Idk how it is around here yet, but when I was in school, we got 40 minutes of recess each day. I guess things have changed :/

I'm not sure. But five minutes is definitely not enough.
