All students go to the cafeteria if they arrive before 7:45, when the first bell rings. Breakfast is available for them. The building is not open to students before 7:30. So students who are dropped off, walk, or ride their bikes before 7:30 stand around outside the front door. Some of them are there for an hour every day because their parents work first shift, and drop them off on their way to work. But those who ride a bus can enter the building as soon as the bus drops them off. This begins to happen at 7:15.

if weather is good they go to a supervised playground if not they go into a specific area of our gym. Each area is assigned to a classroom and students must remain inside the area. They may sit or stand and may play hand held games or chat. It is supervised by 2 teacher associates. they may come as early as 7:00 and go to breakfast first.

School starts at 8:15. Supervision starts at 8. They stay outside. We don't have a breakfast program or anything like that and the bus students arrive at 8:05 ish.

Doors open at 8:45 and they come directly to our rooms. There is no supervision before that.

The building is open at 7:30 for students to go to the cafeteria. They eat or sit around and talk. There is supervision at 7:40. They are dismissed to class at 7:50.

Morning care starts at 7AM, that teacher walks them to their classrooms at 8AM. Anyone who arrives prior to 8AM goes to morning care.

Bell rings at 8:15.

My school offers a walking club for students between 7:45 and 8:15 AM. The students walk or run laps under the supervision of two teachers in the gym. Fortunately, a small stipend was offered for this, rather requiring all of us to take a turn!

The building opens at 7:30 AM. Until walking club begins, the students are supervised by the Head of School. After 8:15 AM, students are dismissed directly to the rooms.

What do you mean "where do they go" and "what do they do"?

They are all over the place at my school. They never go anywhere they are supposed to, which is called "the bus room". Each grade level has a "bus room" that the teachers take turns supervising. Third and fourth are doing that together this year. Upper grade kids are supposed to read and make sure their homework is finished. However.....

1. Some stand outside my door waiting to "help" me instead of going to the designated room.

2. Some pretend to go to breakfast but patrol back and forth until their friends get there.

3. Some rummage through their bookbags which are leaning against the wall in the hall for half an hour so they don't have to go into the designated room and read.

4. Some hang out in the bathroom.

5. Some pretend that they are supposed to walk their brother or sister to kindergarten or first, but they never pay any attention to the kid as they play on their way, stopping to visit every teacher they've ever seen.

6. Some stand outside the library and wait, even though it doesn't open until the 8:00 bell and never has for at least 27 years, and even though they have been told to go back to the designated room 176 times.

All of our schools have a half hour of supervised play and breakfast time before school begins. The gates open at 8:15 and the bell for school rings at 8:45. We have teacher duty stations from 8:15 to 8:30 and others take over duty at 8:30 to 8:45. We each have a week of a duty before or after school about every other week.

The kids play on the grass, on the play structure, basketball, etc. Some parent volunteers organize a running club of kids earning recognition for laps.

Since we have 1350 kids K-5 at our school, it is the only way to get kids dropped off. We have no home to school bus transportation. It's all walking or parent drop off.

If I am there they can be in the room. If not they go to the playroom (room with toys in it) until the teacher arrives. One lady supervises the room.
