What time do your kids leave for school?

My son was accepted to a charter school through lottery which is a great opportunity. We visited on Saturday and he's extremely excited.

This means that he will have to wake up extra early (6:00am leave by 6:30am) as the school is in Manhattan and I live in another borough. Not only am I excited as this is a great school, him going to school in the city is convenient for me as I work less than a half an hour away where as he used to go to school over an hour away from my job. You can imagine how frustrating that is when you get a call from the school nurse that he has to be picked up (it has happened).

While I love the fact that he is closer to me I feel bad that he has to wake up and leave so early. I'm just curious what time do your kids leave to go to school? What time do you send them to bed? Is it hard for them to get ready in the morning? My son is not a morning person :)

My 10th and 8th graders leave at 7:00 (they go to the same charter school).  My 6th grader leaves at 7:50.  Due to the fact that they all go to charter schools without bus service, we have to take and pick them all each day.

That's around the time we would have to leave 6:25. He's 5 going into kindergarten so it's going to be hard

They get up at 5:45. Bus runs at 7.

You're gonna get him up at 6 and out the door in 30 minutes? Does he wake up immediately? My kids need time to get going in the am. They could never be ready to hop on the bus within 30 minutes of waking.

That sounds judgmental. I really don't mean for it to. I'm honestly curious.
