As they engage in socialization, creative, academic, and physical activities throughout the year, our youngest learners attend school all day. They have a morning snack and usually a short morning or afternoon recess in addition to their regular recess time. Afternoon rest time during the first few weeks of school help children, who may be still napping, adjust to the all day schedule.

All children in Grades 1-8 have a morning snack they pack and bring to school.
