School Hours: Classes are held from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parents must sign in their child at the back door. Please drop off your children at the back door, unless instructed otherwise. When Tai-chi is offered, it starts at 7:30 AM. Students signed up for the before school care must stay in the common area until the staff member accompany the children to the after school care classroom. A staff member is charged of the Before School care if offered. Before this time, children are not supervised inside school and rooms remain closed.
Drop off & Dismissal: Parents must sign in/out their child at the back door. Parents arriving at the school after 8:10 a.m. and/or 4:10 p.m. must enter and pick up their child at the reception through the front door. There is a $15/ per 10 minutes/ per child charge for children who are not picked up by 4:10 p.m. Drop off cannot be earlier than 7:50 a.m. Please note that drop off can be earlier on testing/competition days and the parents are notified for an early drop off for testing. Testing & competitions are scheduled during the month of May and June.
Before & After School Care: Before School Care, when offered, starts at 7:45, but depending on the needs of the parents, and the number of students, we may consider offering an earlier Before School Care. After School Care is from 4:00p.m until 5:30p.m., for $125-150 per month, depending on the grade of the child. After School care fees are drafted via ACH drafts along with the tuition.
Lunch Period & Recess: Students must bring their lunch to school unless planned otherwise. A reminder, that if lunch time is to be a relaxation period, then general cleanliness and good conduct must be followed. A clean-up effort is organized each day by each teacher to keep the lunch area clean for the next class. Students are encouraged to respect the playground rules or necessary disciplinary action will be taken. Parents will be called upon for repeated disregard of the rules by their children.
Homework Help: Students eligible for homework help in French (or other subjects) must be signed in for the after school care program to allow teachers to work with the student after hours. Homework help is at the discretion of the Director. Days of homework help varies depending on fall or spring semester and the needs of each school year.
Extracurricular Activities: Many after school activities round out the students’ cultural learning, allowing them to fully develop physically, artistically and intellectually. The Primary Program started offering extracurricular activities in 2010, on and outside of the premises. Most of the activities are taught by JJR instructors or by outside instructors so schedule and fees & charges are subject to change, if applied, and are billed separately. Some school years, JJR cannot offer these activities based on parents demands, staff needs and availability.
