Zero hour is an option for all Middle and Upper School students but not a requirement.

Students in Grades 7-12 who are still on campus after 3:45 p.m., but not involved in a Lausanne activity such as an athletic or art program, report to the library. The library is open until 5:00 p.m. on school days.
