The lunch break is structured so that students have 20 minutes to sit down and eat their lunch, followed by 20 minutes to play. Students not finished eating will be allowed to stay and finish before they are excused to break. Please remind your child to make sure they make their best effort to use eating time to finish their lunch.
There are three structured breaks throughout the school day. One in the morning, one at lunch time, and one in the afternoon. We feel strongly that students need this time to relax, explore, and process the many great things they have been learning. The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that recess is a crucial and necessary component of a child’s development.
