Extended Day


The New School offers before-school care as part of each student’s yearly tuition, before-school beginning at 7:30am and ending at 8:30am. Kindergarten through 11th graders enjoy structured free time and breakfast under the supervision of Classroom Teachers and Extended Day Staff.

The New School also offers after-school care as part of each student’s yearly tuition, after-school beginning at 3:30pm and ending at 5:30pm. Kindergarten through 8th graders enjoy structured free time under the supervision of trained college-aged staff members. Students (2nd-8th grade) also have access to study hall everyday of the week. We want our students to have fun in a safe environment as they wind down from the busy school day. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you have about our after-school program.

BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS

Students are expected to maintain school day behavior during after-school hours. Parents will be notified at pickup if there were behavior issues. Recurring discipline problems may result in students taking a break from after-school.

CELL PHONE USE

The front office, after-school staff and program director communicate through a walkie-talkie app on school iPads called Voxer, and students are checked out by staff using a spreadsheet. Personal cell phone use by staff is strictly prohibited when supervising children. Students may only use their cell phones to contact parents or caregivers under direct supervision by staff.

PICKUP PROCEDURES FOR K-8TH GRADE

Parents may walk to the appropriate locations and check in with an Extended Day Staff Member to pick up their child, OR parents may check in with the front desk and ask the Receptionist to call to have their child sent to the Lobby.

If anyone other than a parent is picking up, they must stop by the front desk and get an Authorized for Release slip and present it to the Extended Day Staff Member before checking the student out.

No student will be released without one of these options.

LATE PICKUP FEE

The New School now has a late-pickup fee. A minimum fee of $15 will be charged per family whose child or children are not picked up by 5:30 pm. After 5:45 pm, $1 per minute will be charged. Please make every effort to pick up your child by 5:30 pm.
