Students generally arrive at school between 7:40 and 7:50 so that they can empty their backpacks into cubbies and prepare for the first class. The school day begins with silence at 8:00 am and runs until 3:30 pm except on Tuesdays, when school ends at 2:00 pm. Students who arrive after the 8:00 bell are required to wait in a “late room” until silence ends.
Class periods are 40 minutes. Students spend the most time with their homeroom teacher; “special” classes rotate through the day and through the year. There is a mid-morning break from 9:40 – 10:00.
All 5/6 students go to PE class from 11:30 – 12:30 each day. This class is followed by lunch. There are generally three class periods in the afternoon following lunch.
All Middle School students attend Meeting for Worship in groups of varying sizes on Thursday mornings for approximately one-half hour. The advisory curriculum is taught in the homeroom during one of the homeroom periods each week. Rehearsal and Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) time occur in the afternoons, and the final period of each Friday is set aside for Middle School assemblies.
