The LCDS Extended Day Program is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and includes extended hours before school, after prekindergarten, and after school. The primary goal of the Extended Day program is to provide a relaxing, nurturing, and stimulating environment in which children have designated time to do homework, play in various self-directed activities and socialize with friends. The three sections of Extended Day are PK/K; 1st-4th; and 5th-8th. In 1st through 8th grades, the first 30 minutes in Extended Day are devoted to homework and snack time. Please send a snack and a drink for your child after school. The next hour from 4:00p-5:00p is spent in outdoor or indoor free playtime. From 5:15p – 6:00p, all three sections of Extended Day combine in the Lower School STEM Lab (Room 36) while awaiting parent pick up.
All LCDS students are welcome to attend Extended Day at any time. There is no paper registration. If your child will attend on a regular basis, please email your child’s teacher and ExtendedDay@LCDS.org with their regular attendance schedule. Also, email ExtendedDay@LCDS.org for any of the reasons below:
- If there is ever any change to your child’s regular attendance schedule
- If your child attends regularly but will be out sick, please include the nature of their illness.
- If your child will only attend occasionally, email whenever you would like your child to attend.
- If someone other than an authorized pick-up person is picking up your child.
