A flexible program extending the school day

Extended Day

Pennfield’s school day does not end for many preschool and pre-kindergarten students at 1 p.m. The majority of these youngsters, especially ones with siblings in kindergarten and above, settle into the Extended Day routine. In the Extended Day, teachers continue to interact with the children in arts and crafts, music, books, games, snacks and outdoor play. Due to COVID-19, for the 2021-2022 school year Extended Day for primary students will only be offered until 3 p.m. Extended Day from 1 – 3 p.m. will be free. 

From 3:00 – 5:00 p.m., students from kindergarten through third grade may choose to participate in Extended Day. This larger group has snacks and begins to tackle the evening’s homework in a separate room, prior to play. Once time has been given to homework, with the assistance of the teachers, the children can relax and engage in fun.  There is a similar program for students in fourth through eighth grade who opt not to participate in an after-school sport or club.

During these unusual times, families need to sign up at the beginning of the school year.  The cost for Extended Day is included in tuition for grades 4 – 8. Rates for younger students in grades K-3 are listed below. 

1 Day per Week        $   720
2 Days per Week      $1,400
3 Days per Week      $2,160
4 Days per Week      $2,880
5 Days per Week      $3,220
