Extended Day

 

 

 

 

The New School offers Before School Care as part of each student’s yearly tuition. Before School Care begins at 7:30am and ends at 8:30am. Kindergarten through 12th graders enjoy breakfast and free time under the supervision of Classroom Teachers.

The New School also offers an After School Program as part of each student’s yearly tuition. The After School Program begins at 3:30pm and ends at 5:30pm. Kindergarten through 8th graders enjoy structured free time under the supervision of trained college-aged staff members. 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

Policies and Expectations

2019-2020

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 the after-school program.

Cell Phone Use

The front office, after-school staff, and program director communicate through a group text app on school iPads called Discord, and students are checked out by staff using a check off sheet on clipboards. 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.
 
Students that are in the 7th and 8th grade may freely use their phones during Extended Day. Students in 6th grade or below may NOT have their phones out during Extended Day. If a child needs to contact a parent, they must ask their Extended Day Staff Member with their group then immediately put it in their bag.

Pick-up 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 Pick-up Fee

The New School Extended Day Program has a late-pickup fee. A minimum fee of $15 will be charged per child 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.
