Extended Day Options

It is not your responsibility to finish the work of perfecting the world,
but you are not free to desist from it either.
— Ethics of Our Fathers 2:21


Before School Care / After School Care

To help accommodate working parent schedules, Before School Care is available for Lower Division (K-5) students beginning at 7:15 a.m. Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). Click here to fill out the Before School Care form.

After School Care is available for students in kindergarten through sixth grade Monday through Thursday from 3:40 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays from 2:50 p.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding holidays). Our Friday after care hours are adjusted to account for Shabbat, and the early sundown that occurs between the fall and spring equinox. For this reason, Friday hours are adjusted to 2:50 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the winter.

Please contact the Lower Division office at (303) 369-0663 as early as possible with messages or schedule changes pertaining to extended day programs. After standard school hours, a member of the after school staff can be reached at (303) 921-4320.

Families using extended day options on a drop-in basis must notify the Lower Division office as soon as the need is established, so we can expect and plan for all children. Before School Care is $8/child/day and After School Care is $15/child/day.
