    • Extended Day Schedule Change Request Period
      Oct 7 - Oct 9
      Families who need to make a change to their extended day schedule for the period beginning October 28th may submit their requests during the upcoming schedule change request period (Oct. 7-9). As a reminder, schedules are set in four-week increments (each day or week can be different). This four-week schedule will remain the same throughout the year unless a schedule change request is submitted and approved. If approved, this schedule would then remain the same throughout the remainder of the school year unless another schedule change request is submitted and approved. The schedule change request period will open Monday, October 7th at 8:00 a.m. and will close at midnight on Wednesday, October 9th. Any approved change requests would not take effect until October 28th. Families who submitted a change request during the above timeframe will be notified by October 16th of whether their change request for the following four-week period can be accommodated. Any approved schedule changes will not begin until October 28th. To ensure licensing compliance, the following will be considered when determining whether a schedule change request can be accommodated: staff-to-student ratios, and physical space limitations. IMPORTANT: There is no guarantee of getting a spot back once dropped as it may be filled by another student.
