As part of our BucsBeyond programming, After School serves students JK–8 as an extension of the day. Balanced between academic support and extracurricular activities, our After School provides a low-stress place for our students where they can relax, breathe, have fun, be themselves, and play with friends. Intentionally structured within our Extended Day Program and augmented through enrichment classes, After School extends the classroom day in a variety of ways including, athletics, arts, language, STEM, cooking, and more.
Our Extended Day Program offers students JK–8 enhanced student growth through learning, play, and rest. Your child's time at Extended Day includes outdoor playground time, indoor play in our dedicated Extended Day classrooms, homework/reading time, and snack. We also offer special seasonal art projects, cooking classes, and other activities to further enhance your child's academic and personal growth.

Guidelines & Policies
- To ensure safe student/teacher ratios, we are not able to switch days around during a particular week. Parents must call our office and add days either on a permanent or drop-in basis from week to week.
- If your child is enrolled in an After School Enrichment Program, you will not be charged for attending Extended Day during that time frame. Please notify the Extended Day Office if your child is enrolled in an enrichment class to receive a one-time credit.
- Children are not permitted to attend Extended Day once they've left campus after the regular school day has ended.
- It is our responsibility to know where each Extended Day child is on any given day at any given time. If your child will not be attending the program for any reason, please notify the office at (704) 943-4648 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Sign Out—To ensure safety and security, parents must sign out before taking a child from Extended Day. Only parents and those individuals on an authorized list may pick-up your child. A photo ID is required before your child is released.
- Field Trips—parents are notified ahead of time of all field trips. We require a parent’s signature on a field trip permission form before a child is allowed to attend. Licensed bus drivers provide transportation, and safety guidelines are strictly enforced. Field trips are usually taken on days that the All-Day program is offered (when classes are not in session).
