Personally, I wish they'd go back to half-day.
I loved half day kindergarten. Lokoing back I can't figure out, to save my life how they fit everything in. I remember we had 2 recesses, desk work, reading groups, inside play time, snacks, art and music once a week and a nap. A nap. we were there for 4 hours!
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

My daughter is starting her first day of k tomorrow at a private school. They do have a full day option, but the public schools are only from 9 - 11:30 or 12:30-3.
