Extending the Day
After School Club/Before School Club is the name of the Extended Day program and enrollment is available for Pre-School-8th Grade students who require after or before school care. It provides flexibility and convenience for families of children in Pre-School through 8th grade, while giving the students time for activities, games, exercise, help with their homework, and a snack in a safe and comfortable environment. As an extension of the regular school day, the Before and After School staff reinforce the same values that are being taught in the classrooms. The Extended Day program is separated into Pre-School, Lower School, and Middle School groups. Before School Club begins as early as 7am. After School Club runs from the end of the regular school day until 5:30pm, or 6pm for those enrolled in the Double Extended program. Prior enrollment in Before and After School Club is required.
A student may occasionally stay late ONLY IF the required ratios allow for additional students. Families who wish to request an occasional extended morning or afternoon, should complete a request form at the front desk for Pre-School or email the Division Head for K – 8th grades. These requests should be made in advance; it is not safe to assume the extra hours will be available.
