Extended Day Care

We have had a number of requests for before and after school care between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. We hope to offer these programs in the coming school year. Contact the front desk to put your name on the interest list.


A safe and secure school is our first priority. We incorporate physical security measures and crisis planning to keep our school safe. Our school safety plan includes a full time security guard, cameras, secured school entrance and on-going training for all teachers and support staff.
