Dear Families,

The Walpole Extended Day Program provides on-site before and after school care for all children enrolled in a Walpole Public Schools Elementary School.

Each program maintains at least a 12:1 student to adult ratio, and provides a variety of structured Activities/Crafts, Recess/PE Play, Presentations, Homework Time, and Clubs at no additional charge.

The Extended Day Staff coordinates to provide all students a variety of options at each point of the day. While we want the children to join us as much as possible, families are able to structure their attendance to meet their individual before and after school needs.

The morning schedule provides time to each breakfast prior to the start of the school day, and the afternoon program provides a snack shortly after the end of the school day.

Program activities and daily projects are planned and implemented by qualified staff members from a variety of education and child development backgrounds.

Registration for both Extended Day and the Remote Day Supervision programs can be found at the link  here

The Extended Day Parent Handbook can be accessed here.

Extended Day Specifics
  • Each Walpole Elementary School will operate a full Extended Day schedule each day school is in session.
  • Drop off for the morning will be available as early as 7:00am, and pick up from the afternoon program will be by 6:00pm. Extended Day will not operate on the fully remote day for all (mostly Wednesdays).
  • Families are required to register for both days their cohort is in school each week, but can choose a schedule based on morning and afternoon needs.
  • The program fee will be billed monthly at a rate of:
    • Mornings only ($33/week)
    • Afternoons only ($66/week)
    • Mornings and Afternoons ($99/week)
  • Students will be assigned to groups that will not cross over during each part of the program. For example, Group 1 and Group 2 in the afternoon will not be on the play structure together. However, the Extended Day groups may not match the classroom group during the day, and, to accommodate morning/afternoon schedule choice, the morning and afternoon Extended Day groups may also not match each other.
  • Extended Day activities will be modified to create as much normalcy as possible while still following distancing and individual materials guidelines.
Remote Day Supervision Specifics
  • The Remote Day Supervision Program will be open from 8:45am - 2:45pm each full day of school. The program will not be open on the fully remote day for all (mostly Wednesdays). 
  • Families are required to register for both remote days for their cohort each week.
  • The program fee will be billed monthly at a rate of $162/week.
  • Students will be separated by school first, and then divided up into groups based on age/grade when possible.
  • Students will be able to sign into synchronous learning time with their class.
  • Student schedules will include:
    • Time to complete classwork, both on and off their device.
    • Time for both recess and arts/crafts activities.  
    • Time for both breakfast and lunch.
    • Walpole School Nutrition will deliver breakfasts and lunches, ordered through their remote meal system, to the Remote Day Supervision sites.
  • The program staff will have procedures to keep students focused and engaged with their work, but will not be able to provide additional instruction.
General Notes about Both Programs
  • Families can register for both programs, or just one program. A family does not need to be part of Extended Day to register for Remote Day Supervision, or vice versa. To take part in either program, families do need to be part of the hybrid model, and attend school on their cohort days.
  • Health and safety guidelines and protocols congruent with those of the schools will be followed at both programs.
  • Drop off and pick up procedures will be modified to only allow students inside the building.  
  • Parents dropping off in the morning will be required to complete a daily COVID 19 symptom check with the Site Coordinator.
  • Families registering for both programs will only need to pay one $35 registration fee per child.
  • Billing for both programs will be online through MySchoolBucks.

The Walpole Public Schools Extended Day Program does not discriminate in providing services to children and their families on the basis of race, sexual orientation, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability or marital status.
