Students involved in Extended Day may also arrange to participate in After-School Activities. Extended Day is offered to students on a contract basis and by drop-in as long as space permits. (Please email

Any child not enrolled in the Extended Day program and not picked up 15 minutes after dismissal (including After-School activities) will be sent to Extended Day. Parents will be billed at the full drop-in rate.
