Has anyone else had issues with their Kindergartener hitting/kicking other students in class?? :(

My son just started school, he has never been in daycare very long or anything else where he is surrounded by kids in a classroom setting. He has started hitting and kicking other kids in the classroom and is constantly in trouble. Can anyone suggest anything to help reverse this behavior? I think we have tried everything and I am afraid he may have to switch classrooms if this persists. Any help or idea is greatly appreciated!

my middle child had the same issues this year when she started kindergarten. we met with her teacher and came up with a plan together so that we were working together in school and at home and enforcing the same consequences both places. the first 3 weeks were HORRID and we sat abby down and told her that she would have 2 more weeks to show us and her teacher that she was old enough to be in kindergarten by demonstrating that she could follow the rules, keep her hands and feet to herself, sit quietly when asked,and be kind or we would be taking her out of class and she would have to wait another year. some kids need more time to grow and be ready.
