The Extended Day Program is available to all students from dismissal to 6:00pm and begins on the first day of school. Families can sign up for the Fall, the Spring, or the entire year. Siblings of fifth and sixth graders are also eligible for Extended Day supervision until 3:45. In addition, the program is available on a drop-in basis.
The program provides a supervised homework session (study hall), gym/sports activities, art, computers, games and crafts. In addition, we offer a few enrichment activities for an additional fee. If your child has a music lesson or tutoring after school, you are required to sign up for extended day unless their lesson is immediately upon dismissal and they are picked up immediately after their lesson; ‘regular drop-in’ is no longer an option. If you need to send your child to extended day occasionally, you can simply inform the classroom teacher via email in advance before 10am on the day you want them to stay. You will be billed at a rate of $17 an hour.
NOTE: Each classroom teacher is given a list of children who are registered for Extended Day, and those children will be sent to their extended day activities immediately following the grade level dismissal. If your child needs to go home on a day(s) that they are scheduled for Extended Day, PLEASE NOTIFY THE TEACHER DIRECTLY VIA A NOTE OR AN EMAIL.
The Extended Day Program activities change on a monthly/seasonal basis. Classes that require a commitment throughout the semester, such as dance (Tuesday and Thursday) and Karate (Friday), will be offered (subject to change). Classes in art, computers, science, and active programs are calendar driven. This project-based approach keeps our activities fresh and current with seasonal changes, student interests, and school-wide initiatives. Optional enrichment classes will also be offered. The choices will be available in the fall.
Supervised study hall is available to students enrolled in Extended Day. Grades 1 and 2 will work at “homework” tables. Most first and second graders will have time to complete their work before activities begin. If they need additional time, they will be provided with a space to continue their work once classes are under way.
Students in grades 3 through 6 will report to the library. Those needing to complete homework will remain there for quiet, focused homework time. As soon as students finish their work, they are free to join other activities.. If a family wishes for their child to fully complete all of his/her daily work while at Extended Day, they must express this to their child and on the Extended Day registration form. It is the student’s responsibility to complete their homework.
The first week consists of familiarizing students with policies and procedures. Activities will begin the second week of school. Families will receive both an electronic and a paper copy of the monthly calendar.
The Extended Day Program offers additional coverage Monday through Thursday (3:00 - 6:00pm) and Friday (12:15 - 6:00pm).
The registration options are as follows:
- Monday through Thursday: dismissal through 4:30pm or 6:00pm.
- Extended Day supervision for siblings of Grade 5 & 6 students is available until 3:45pm.
- Friday: dismissal through 1:30pm, 4:30pm or 6:00pm
