School Life

Daily Timetable

Morning Drop-off

Students, who arrive at school before the 8:00 a.m. supervision time, must wait outside the school unless they are enrolled in the Before School Program. Students must line up at a designated place in the parking lot. At the sound of the bell, supervisors will direct students into the building. Parents: please do not drop off students in the backlane. Instead, use the school’s parking lot or Braemar Avenue. Please refer to our Before & After School Program for more specific details regarding morning and afternoon options outside of class hours.



All Kindergarten to Grade 5 students will have recess three times each day – morning, lunch and afternoon. Grades 6 to 8 students will have a 15-minute recess in the morning and a 20-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.

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.

After school dismissal

Holy Cross School provides after school supervision only from 3:00 - 3:15 p.m. 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 extracurricular 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 3:15 p.m. will be sent to the After School Program and families will be required to pay the $5.00 fee. Other arrangements may be made with the principal if a student has a sibling at St. Boniface Diocesan High School.
