After School Care

Child care for students in preschool through grade 8 is provided from 3:15 to 6 pm. Families who need child care on just an occasional basis or in the event of an emergency are welcome to participate in the program.

  • Complete the After Care Form by 2 pm to let us know your child will be attending.
  • After School Care is available every day until 6 pm (except if circumstances prohibit providing care).
