A Typical Day

Lower School
Classes in the Lower School are self-contained and include time for special area classes (music, art,
P.E., foreign language, science, computer, and LifePrep), mid-morning snack, lunch, and recess.
All Lower School students have a mid-morning fruit break. Each child who wishes to eat a midmorning
snack should bring fruit, raw vegetables, or other nutritious food. To promote better nutrition,
we ask that all children limit their snacks to the above suggestions.
Lower School lunch schedule (in the Brown Lower School Dining Hall) begins at 11:05 and lasts
until 12:15. Please check with your child's homeroom teacher for more specific information.
Lunches may be brought from home or purchased in the Dining Room and billed through the business
office. All Lower School students must choose milk or juice for lunch. Children are not allowed to
bring carbonated drinks. Lower School children enrolled in the After School Activities Program I
(ASAP I) or staying for Lunch Bunch should bring a complete lunch including a drink. They eat lunch
in their classrooms where microwaves are not available. Lower School tutorials need to be scheduled
with teachers in advance."
