Balanced Day

What is a Balanced School Day?

Our school day will still run from 8:30 to 3:00 but the blocks of learning time will be reworked within this time frame to benefit the children.  There is no change to the number of teaching minutes per  day, nor to the total number of recess minutes per day, just fewer transition times and increased learning time.

The most important change with a Balanced School Day for parents is how to pack lunch.

The school day will look like this:

School starts at 8:30am
Food Break & Recess #1: 10:30 – 11:15 am
Food Break & Recess #2: 1:15 – 2:00pm
School ends: 3:00pm

The School Council Hot lunch program will continue on Wednesdays and Fridays and will be served during Food Break #2.
