Usually i work either 7:00am to 3:30pm to 8:00am to 4:30pm which will not allow me to take the kids there first day dd starts kindergarten this year. Yesterday i put in a request at work to change my schedule working outside my set availability they did approve it. So i will be taking the kids the first day. will you be taking your kids there first day?

My oldest starts kindergarten this fall, and its mandatory that at least 1 parents attend the first day. So ya :) My hubby and I will take our daughter to her first day of school. Even if it wasn't mandatory we still would. :)

If it was mandatory i attend the first day i would seriously tell them too bad i have to work. its hard enough to get approved for an adjusted shift let alone a whole day off, but the sooner i put requests in the better chances i have on getting them approved

Good luck with that one! When ds was in kindergarden i took him into the gym thats where the kids waited for there teacher to come get them every morning. But they have since changed that policy, they dont want all the parents in the school for the safety of the children. Both kids will be in before school care and most days i will be at work 1 1/2 hours before school starts.

 No, my boys will ride the bus like they always do.  I will drive myself to school alone. Parents aren't permitted past the lobby any way, so it really doesn't make any sense to drive them when they could ride the bus.

I'll take my 3rd grader, which is probably the first time since kinder.

My highschoolers - I believe their comments were "Over your dead body mom!" Which is fine because they have to be there at 7am.

I take mine everyday. There is no bus as they go to private school. :-)
