Times & Dates

The School Day

The length of the school day varies grade by grade. Class timetables are issued by class/homeroom teachers at the beginning of each term. There will be exceptions to the regular school hours in the form of teachers' in-service training etc. Parents will be notified of these exceptions through Wilma and sometimes through separate notes from class/homeroom teachers. Parents are expected to read Wilma messages carefully. Afternoon care will be provided for students needing it even on those shorter school days.
