What is your inclement weather policy?

If inclement weather impacts Extended Care, we will make every effort to make a cancellation decision in a timely manner. In the event of a cancellation, we will notify the primary and secondary contact on the student account. If the school announces closure which includes Extend programs, we will not provide additional notification. If a class must be cancelled for weather or other unforeseen circumstances, we will not refund class fees for missed sessions.

How will you handle snacks?

How do I access my forms?

To complete the Registration Form, Homework Completion Form, or student sign out permission, please access your forms. To access your forms view this step by step tutorial.

How do I register by the day?

By-the-day registration can sometimes be a bit tricky. Follow this tutorial, and you’ll be a pro before you know it.

Extended Care by the Day or by the Month is a single session to select, followed by options of specific days or months. Due to this setup, when you sign up initially the session is easy to find. However, when you return later to add more days or months, the session doesn’t appear with the other options. To add additional care, please edit your Extended Care enrollment session listed on your Current Reservations and add the new days or months you need, then proceed to payment and completion.
