The difference, apparently, is based on whether you are American or British.

i live in US so it's definitely true that people here would say "on" the weekend"
"at" a location as in "at school" "at church"

If you are, as you say you are, a teacher of English, then you should know how to write correctly:

I'm an Englishman. I always use 'at'.
