Forest Park School follows a Balanced School Day.
The Balanced School Day schedule divides the school day into three equal 100 minute blocks of instructional time. Two longer nutrition and activity breaks are provided in the morning and afternoon instead of the traditional mid-morning/mid-afternoon recess and noon hour lunch. This schedule creates equally balanced teaching and learning blocks in the school day. The two nutrition/activity breaks of 40 minutes in the morning and 50 minutes in the afternoon allow time for eating and activity in both the morning and afternoon. Nutrition breaks provide 15-20 minutes for eating and 20-30 minutes for activity. Kindergarten is a half-day program, they are not included in this schedule.
Our daily schedule for Grades 1-5 is as follows:
9:00 - 10:40 am Instructional Block
10:40 - 11:20 am Nutrition/Activity Break
11:20 - 12:50 am Instructional Block
12:50 - 1:40 pm Nutrition/Activity Break
1:40 - 3:25 pm Instructional Block
