Students, who arrive at school before the 8:00 a.m. supervision time, must wait outside the school unless they are enrolled in our Before School Program. Students must line up at a designated place in the parking lot. At the sound of the bell, the supervisors will direct the students into the building. Parents: please do not drop off students in the back lane. Use the school’s parking lot or Braemar Avenue. Please refer to our Before and After School Program (ABOUT Menu Bar on our HCS Web Site) for more specific details regarding the Early Morning Drop-Off and After School Dismissal Program.
All Kindergarten to Grade 5 students will have recess three times each day – morning, lunch, and afternoon. Grades Six, Seven, and Eight students will have a fifteen minute recess in the morning and a twenty minute recess at lunch. Students will go outside for recess each day unless the weather is inclement. Play areas are organized in the field and play structure area of the Champlain Community Centre. Supervisors will monitor students during each recess break.
Holy Cross School is proud to provide all students with a large cafeteria for eating lunch.
Holy Snacks personnel provide hot meals. A monthly menu is distributed for families.
All students are expected to eat lunch in the cafeteria unless families have given written notification that their son/daughter is permitted to leave the school premises.
If at any time a cafeteria supervisor considers that students are behaving in an unacceptable or unsafe manner, the supervisor may assign consequences as outlined in the school’s Code of Conduct.
Holy Cross School provides afterschool supervision only from 3:00 – 3:30 pm for students outside the school building. Thus all students with the exception of those enrolled in the Before & After School Program or in a school sponsored extra-curricular activity must leave school property. It is the responsibility of families to make suitable arrangements for student pick up after school ends each day. Any student on school property at 3:30 p.m. will be sent to the After School Program and families will be required to pay the $5.00 fee. Some other arrangements may be made with our Principal if a student has a sibling at St. Boniface Diocesan High School.
