How long is the day?
At Akiva, we begin our day with morning assembly at 7:55am. Our students eat lunch between 11:30-12:30pm and with a morning snack around 10am. Our day ends at 3:30pm and our after school programs run until 5:30pm. However, when we are NOT in daylight saving (November – March) our Fridays end at 2:30pm in order to ensure families can observe Shabbat.
Is there transportation available?
