After School

Extended Day for The Experiential School & Lower School 

Extended Day is designed to provide a safe, nurturing, and enjoyable environment for children who require supervision beyond school hours on a regular basis. Activities will include snack, outdoor play, time for homework, games and crafts. Care is offered from 2:45 - 6:00pm on regular school days. 

Extended Day locations
Experiential School:
August through December, extended care for Alpha will be located in Ms. Styke’s classroom and for JK in Ms. Daley’s classroom.
From January through May, extended care for Alpha will be located in Mrs. Markunas’ room and for JK in Mrs. Gallego’s room.

Lower School:
Kindergarten & first grade rotate through first grade classrooms.
Second-Fourth grade in Charger Commons Dining Room.

Checking out students:
  • Anyone picking up a student should enter through the main door of the Mike Murphy Experiential School, located towards the right when facing Charger Commons, the new building (view map for location). At the desk the parent/guardian will show ID and sign out the student. They will receive a pass to give to the teacher and retrieve the child. This will be the case even during outdoor play. Anyone unknown to the staff member at the desk will need to show ID and be on the student’s pick-up list. A familiar staff member will be at the pick-up site to cut down on the number of times parents/guardians are asked to show ID.
  • Middle school students are not authorized to pick up students in grades 2 and younger.
Other Logistics:
  • Students are strongly encouraged to have water bottles with their names on them. Second - eighth graders are required to provide a labeled, sealable water bottle due to the location of their aftercare.

Child Care for School Closed Days

As an extra service, child care is available for Alpha – fourth graders when school is closed: Half Days and School Closed Days. Separate registration is required for these days. View a list of 2019-20 dates here.

    Registration for After School Clubs (only available during registration period):

    Club Logistics

    At dismissal, Lower School students walk - or are escorted if they are in kindergarten or first grade - to the tables in front of Charger Commons. There they are supervised by the Director of Auxiliary Programs, Terry Kessel. They have about 10 minutes to eat a snack from home before clubs begin.

    Club leaders meet the children at the tables, take attendance, and then bring them to the room where the club will be held. Clubs last about an hour, and then the teachers will bring the children back to outside of Charger Commons for families to pick them up between 4-4:10pm. At this time the LS front gate is locked, so families may park outside of Haskell Library/Admissions or Charger Commons. 

    Students who remain after 4:10pm will be escorted to after care and charged accordingly.

    Cub Scouts (co-ed)

    Cub Scout Pack 303 holds its meetings on the first Tuesday of each month from 3:00- 4:30pm in the Wood Family Pavillon (7/8th grade lunch area). Boys and girls in first - fifth grades are welcome to join. Contact Shorecrest parent and Cub Master: Brian O’Neill
