Important Reminders about Pick up and Drop off:

Parents, guardians or those adults listed on the emergency form are the only authorized persons to pick up or drop off your children. These authorized adults must sign-out with the Extended Day teacher at pick up. 

 

If your child is picked up after 6:00 p.m., there will be a late charge of $1 for every minute which will appear on your monthly statement.

 

An identification card or driver’s license must be shown when the person picking up the child is not known to the Extended Day caregiver and is not on a child’s emergency form.  Parents or guardians must provide a written note with signature, an e-mail or a fax with signature stating permission for a different person to pick up or drop off the child.  The notice should contain the name of the person and what time they will be arriving, as well as the number of days this person will be picking up or dropping off.

 

The Extended Day registration form is used to inform teachers and staff of your plans for before and after school care. Changes to your extended plans should be in writing as soon as possible.

 

Extended Day Program Information:E

Our Extended Day program offers structure and flexibility. Students are encouraged to make their own choices and to take initiative. They may participate in organized activities or play with their friends and socialize. They may be indoors or outdoors and play in a group or complete their homework.

 

Middle School students are allowed to work on their laptops during Extended Day as long as they get permission from the teacher.  Also, they must pre-approve the websites that they want to view. Students will not be allowed to view web pages like My Space, Facebook and other social networking sites.

 

Extended Day Teachers:

All of our extended day teachers have medical and background clearance and are qualified with appropriate educational training. They are C.P.R. and first aid trained.

In the event of an emergency, you can reach the teachers at the following numbers:

Noon Dismissal:

Extended Day is offered during most noon dismissal days which include conference days and staff development days. Please refer to the school calendar and prearrange your Extended Day needs by signing up as requested.

 

Students are expected to follow the same rules that apply during the school day. They are required to be with a teacher at all times, not go back to their classroom, to walk on the way to or from the playground, and to put away the materials they have used before they leave the school at pickup time.

 

Enrichment Classes:

During the hour your child is in their Enrichment class, you will not be charged any additional money by the Extended Day program. However, once your child has arrived back into the regular Extended Day class, you will be charged for the amount of time they stay.
