Here’s a dream: flexible drop-off time for elementary schools

There’s a local summer camp here (the most expensive one) that has a flexible drop-off time; anytime after 7 a.m. Here’s a dream for you — I’d love it if our public elementary schools were set up the same way. Drop off your kid anytime between 7-9 a.m. They’ll feed the ones who are hungry, do low-key supervised play and/or one-on-one tutoring / gifted enrichment with the rest, and regular schooling will start at 9.

It’d be a bit of a juggle with busing, so likely wouldn‘t solve things for everyone, but it’d be better for so many families, I think.

This message brought to you by me feeling like a hero as I drowsily moved the #spacekitten sleeping on me, in order to grumpily climb out of a warm bed at 7 a.m., to make sure Anand got dressed, fed, and out the door by 7:25 a.m.
