1. When is your break/recess time?
Our first break is lunch time for us. Recess is in the afternoon— 2 hours after lunch. It’s 20 minutes- we have yard duty once a week.

2. When is your lunch time?
3 hours after the students begin their day. It’s 45 minutes-Duty free

My grade level
Class 2.5 hours
Recess (teacher supervised) 15 minutes
Class 1.5 hours
Lunch (teacher supervised) 15 minutes
Recess (duty free) 20 minutes
Class 2 hours

We do have 55 minute prep, so it's not as terrible as it looks for teachers, but there is not enough recess for kids. I don't know how to fit in any more, though.

Primary get an extra 15 minutes in the afternoon and a slightly longer lunch recess earlier in the day.

1. When is your break/recess time?
School begins at 8:45, recess for 4th and 5th grades is 11:00-11:15am, recess is duty free, as it's our break too. We either have morning recess duty, before school begins, 8:25-8:45 or afterschool duty. about 1 week every 4 weeks.

2. When is your lunch time?
Lunch time is 12:45-1:20pm, that includes play time.
Teachers have a duty free lunch.

Our first recess is from 10 to 10:20, ten minute supervise, ten minute break. Lunch is from 12 to 12:40 (duty free) and we go until the end of the day. I only get 2 30 minute preps a week.

It changes every year. Last year we did not have recess or lunch as a grade level-it was mixed grades. This year we will eat lunches as grade levels. (We went from three student lunch periods down to two student lunch periods so it will be tricky getting 6 classes in/out of cafeteria in 30 minutes. We don't have schedules yet so I don't know about recess.

My schedule for last year was-
Students arrive 8:55am.
Lunch 12:20-12:50 (Teachers have duty-free lunch when the students have lunch.)
Recess 12:55-1:15 (Teachers have recess duty every day.)
Special 1:20-1:50
Dismissal 3:40pm

Students can enter the room at 7:45. We dismiss at 3:20. Recess is 20 minutes from 11:40-12:00. They then have lunch from 12:00-12:20. However, we have them line up by 12:18. Teachers have recess duty once a week and lunch duty as needed.

I am a specialist and have not made my schedule yet. I used to do K-3 and this year will be K-2, so I suspect I will have an earlier lunch than I'm used to (I've always seen 3rd grade right before lunch and then taken my lunch with them).

Thankfully at my school lunch and recess are supervised by paras, so teachers never have that duty. It's 40 minutes total- 20 minutes lunch and 20 minutes recess. There are no additional recess times and unless it's a special occasion you can't just decide to take your class out- there are times that everyone has to follow for each subject. K does get a 2nd 20 minute recess, BUT that is only because their specials are half as long, so it's really just to give the teachers the full prep time (this recess is also supervised by paras).

Our school day is 7:30-3:30 for teachers and 8:00-3:00 for students. Teachers get a 50 minute plan time, but at least 2 of those per week are taken up with PLC/"collaborative plan time" (aka spend time with a coach and take 10x longer to plan than if you'd just had time to do it yourself).

No recess for my kids. School starts at 8:10 my prep is from 9:00 - 9:40 everyday. Lunch is 11:25-11:55. I have a duty free lunch. It is supposed to be 20 minutes but by the time I walk my class to and from it's usually 17 minutes, some days they send them back early too. I hope this year is better than last, it depends who's on duty.

Our kids have a 30 minute recess grades K-6 everyday supervised by non-classroom teachers. We have to take our students out for a second recess at a time of our choice.

The students have a 30 minute lunch every day with a teacher and teacher aid on duty every day. We all take turns doing lunch duty 1 day a week. '

I hate to hear that teachers do not have a prep time every day. It is so needed.
