Bell Times

A+ A-

We operate a balanced day schedule; three 100 minute blocks with two nutrition breaks.

Nutrition Breaks:
Each nutrition break will be 40 minutes in length. The first 20 minutes will be different for primary/junior students than it will be for middle school students.

Primary/Junior – Students go outside for first twenty minutes and then come in to eat.

Middle School – Students eat for the first twenty minutes and then go outside.

All students will be expected to stay at school for the first nutrition break, and may go home for lunch during the second nutrition break, provided that this parental expectation is communicated to the school.
