Lunch and Lyceum

Middle School - Mondays through Fridays
  • 20 minutes for lunch
  • 20 minutes for recreation on the field or in the gym
  • 20 minutes in a classroom to finish homework or receive tutoring. 
This schedule increases the amount of time that students have for eating lunch and physical activity, while still providing them with an opportunity to complete the homework for one class.

High School - Mondays through Fridays
  • 30 minutes for lunch
  • 30 minutes for Lyceum options: study, tutoring, socialization, or recreation. 
This schedule allows our high school students to make choices about how they will use their time.

Familia Fridays
  • Middle School - 30 minutes for lunch, followed by programs and events with their Gladiator Teams for 30 minutes.
  • High school - 30 minutes for recreation, followed by 30 minutes for lunch on Fridays.

New Lyceum Schedule

The leadership team has spent the past few weeks carefully and deliberately crafting an improved version of the Lunch and Lyceum schedule that we will be implementing when we return from Labor Day weekend. We believe that this revised Lunch and Lyceum schedule will better meet the needs of all our students and faculty.

Continue for a broad overview of the Lunch and Lyceum schedule moving forward:

Absences: Missed Homework

It is the responsibility of the student to make up missed homework after any absence, planned or due to illness, in a timely manner. If a student is unable to attend school and seeks his or her assignments, he or she should contact a classmate for that information, not the school office. It is wise to coordinate with a friend (perhaps one who lives close by) early on in the year so that homework handouts might also be collected for the absent student.

An absence on the due date of a major assignment (essay, lab report, project, etc.) or exam may not extend the due date of that assignment. The student should expect to submit the work and/or make-up the exam on the day of his/her return. Likewise, absences during the preparation time of a major assignment may not extend the due date. Please see the faculty course syllabi for specific guidelines regarding make-up work following absences.

To email teachers, please refer to the Faculty Contact page.
The Family Directory is a useful resource for students to contact a classmate.

Reporting an Absence - Excused Absence

Please remember to report your child’s absence by calling or emailing the NPX Attendance Line. Leave your child’s name and the reason for their absence. Unreported absences are considered as Unexcused Absences. NPX ATTENDANCE LINE (602)996-4355 or Email:
