extended care

Extended Care is open all day for children ages three and four from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. This allows children to be in class three or five days a week and still have a place to go when class doesn’t meet. For students in grades 5K to 8th, care goes from 7 to 7:55 a.m. before school, and after dismissal, from 3:10 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.
