At our school K-2 get 3 recesses. A 15 min one in the morning, 30 min after lunch (or before if they are the last group to get lunch) and 15 min afternoon recess. They get 20 min for lunch. 3-4 get dropped down to 2 recesses I think. I'm not sure if they drop the morning or afternoon recess but it is possible they drop both 15 min recess and just get their lunch recess.
