ESS (Extended School Service) --
Before & After School Care Program
It is our goal to provide safe and quality care for the students. We do our best to help students with their homework, to coach them with problem solving, and to provide fun programming ideas to keep students entertained. We strongly believe in the power of the parent-staff partnership and encourage parents to share their insights with us at any time. We are part of the school's goal to educate the whole child - academically and socially. We strive for quality in both areas.
Registration & Fees
Students who arrive on campus before 8:00 a.m. must be signed into ESS.
All unsupervised students in the parking lot at 3:12 p.m. will be checked in to ESS unless they are being watched by a parent or guardian.
Student Departure from ESS
Students cannot leave ESS unless they are signed out by a parent or guardian.
This includes going back into the school to gather belongings. The teachers have asked us to limit the traffic in the hallways after school hours, and so students are responsible for bringing everything they will need to take home. If someone other than a student's parent or guardian is picking them up, the ESS staff needs to be notified via a note or email. We will also check ID to ensure the safety of our students.
In order to streamline signing in and out, ESS is now using Kinderlime to help with that process as well as billing. Nothing cost wise will change, but we now have 4 digit pin numbers
Homework time is an important part of the schedule. It is our goal to help all students to finish their homework. We do our best to ensure a quiet working environment and homework help from staff. While doing homework at ESS is not mandatory, if you would like your student to complete their work at ESS we would love to help make that happen. You can let the staff know and we will add your student to the homework list. (This list is not public knowledge and is only maintained for staff use.)

ESS uses the basketball court everyday after school during our recess time.
Please do not park on the basketball court after 3:15 daily.
