Noon Supervision

CBE schools provide students in Grades 1-6 or in full-day kindergarten with the option of staying at school for lunch. If students opt to stay at school, they are required to pay for noon supervision service. This service provides students the opportunity to practice social skills supported by caring adult supervision.

The program requires registration and there is a fee to participate. A waiver process is in place for families who cannot afford to pay fees.

For more information, visit our Noon Supervision page.

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and registration forms.

Our school office opens on Aug. 27, 2020 for registration.
