What grade will you let your kids get up and ready for school by themselves?

This has been on my mind lately, since my kids are getting older- they will be entering 4th and 8th grade this year. I still get up with them on school mornings to make sure they are getting out to the bus stop on time. But I'm starting to wonder if I'm "babying" them by doing this? At what age/grade should they be responsible enough to set an alarm and get themselves ready for school?
I have memories of getting myself ready for school each morning but I can't remember how old I was. I remember that I would have to wake my mom up before I left each morning to tell her what I was wearing. She had this fear that I'd get kidnapped or something and she wanted to be able to tell the police what I was wearing that day, I guess.
