I'd reinforce Miles's Squirrelmail suggestion. Not only is it easy to 'skin', it's also fairly easy (if you are into hacking PHP) to write a plugin to disable features you don't want the kids to access. If you have some way of mapping kid's email addresses onto school year or age, you could also automatically reveal more user interface as the kids get older.
Could someone explain to me the efficacy of providing email service to elementary students? As the father of an elementary student, I would refuse him that service as unnecessary and actually perhaps antithetical to his academic achievement.
