Noon Supervision  

Students in Grade 6 are supervised by lunch supervisors in a designated area during daily lunch hours (Monday through Thursday, from 11:48-12:32). The lunch hour includes a 25 minute supervised lunch, followed by a 20 minute supervised outdoor play time on the adolescent playground and upper field of the school. CBE Noon Noon supervision fees for Grade 6 students are assigned to parents centrally, and will be communicated shortly.  Parents are requested to go onto PowerSchool and register your student for this service, however, if your student is using this service and is not registered the fee will be applied centrally.

Students in Grades 7-9 follow an open campus model, and must sign an Off Campus Commitment together with their parents at the start of the school year, outlining the responsibilities for safety and good citizenship during lunch hours.
