We live in California if this makes any difference, I'm not sure. My son starts school in the fall and I was looking on the paper and class is from 8:10-2:45. Does that seem like a long school day for a kindergartner or is it just me?? I'm honestly really sad he will be gone that long. I'm also pretty worried how he will handle it. Right now he is is preschool three days a week for 2.5 hours.
