Re: How long is your child's school commute?

I drive my son 5 min. from home to his daycare lady's house. She drives him the 1 min. to school- her driveway is at the opening to the school parking lot, so she drives him across the street and to the kindergarten door. At the end of the day her 6th grader picks my son up by the flag pole and walks him home (again maybe 3 min through the parking lot and across the street).

Some of the kids at the high school I teach at spend 45min-1 hour on the bus each way though.

It's about ten minutes to the county school my daughter currently goes to, and about ten minutes to the city school we've decided to send both older two to next year. The city high school is about a block from the city elementary school.

5 minute walk. Being able to walk to school was a priority for us when choosing where to live.

My daughter's elementary school is 3/4 mile away. It takes about 10 minutes if we walk or 3 minutes if we drive.

Re: How long is your child's school commute?

L starts preschool Dec 1 and its just up the road like less then 5 minutes, and once they start gradeschool its 2 minutes other way. But we live in a tiny city more of a village. We will likely move before or soon after they start school then in a bigger city it will likely be fiurther. But we dont have school districts here you can choose from. Many cities kids have to go to other cities.

DD1 in first grade and about 2 miles away. Bus ride takes about 20 minutes.

Preschool is about 3 miles for DS, but there is a bus for him that is about 10 minutes with harnesses (6 kids total).

DD2 goes to a church preschool about 10 minutes away.

Re: How long is your child's school commute?

We are across the street from the middle school. the lower elementary/preshool (pK-3rd) is a 5 min drive car or little longer by bus since it stops at the middle school first

The bus picks the boys up at our drive way at 7:40am and they are at school by 8am. School gets out at 3:20 and they are home by 3:40. Only on the bus less than 10 min.

We are the last stop in the AM and first stop in the PM

10 minutes. They go to school where I teach. I'm so thankful I live close. Helps on the gas bill!
