The school day begins promptly at 08:00 and ends at 15:20 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Our Wednesdays are partially dedicated to teachers’ professional learning and collaboration so the day ends at 14:10. Students are expected to be in their classrooms and ready to start by 08:00 and may arrive from 07:45 onward. It is essential that parents respect this schedule so their child does not miss an important part of the school day.

Students receive instruction in Literacy, Numeracy, Science and Social Studies daily. Art, Music, Physical Education and Dance are taught throughout the school year with two classes per week, and Macedonian Language classes take place four times per week throughout the school year. All of these subjects are taught under the PYP framework, each subject being part of the Unit of Inquiry.

K-5 students have a short breakfast snack from 09:35 until 10:10 while PreK students have their breakfast from 08:25 until 08:55.Lunch and recess are scheduled from 12:30 until 13:35 for K-5 students while PreK students start their lunch at 11:40 followed by quiet/nap time until 13:55. Meals can either be brought from home or purchased from the cafeteria on a semester basis. Students are not permitted to buy lunch in the cafeteria, however, they may buy a drink to accompany their packed lunch or hot meal. We encourage healthy eating, so we ask that food brought from home is also nutritious and doesn’t include candy, sodas and unhealthy snacks. Students are not allowed to leave the building during school hours.

Parents/guardians are expected to pick up their child(ren) promptly at 15:20 unless they are in a supervised extracurricular activity after school or enrolled in our after-school daycare program. Students can choose from a variety of semester long activities that last until 16:25. If a parent is late beyond 15:25, the child will be taken to the after school daycare room and charged an additional fee, after repeated occurrences.

If a child is absent, please call the administration office, ext. 201. Every day is an important day of learning, so students are expected to be at school unless they are ill or there is a family emergency. If a student is absent for reasons other than illness, parents are asked to fill out a Planned Absence form prior to any absences. These are available from homeroom teachers.
