Schedule Changes and Withdrawal
In order to hire the best possible teachers, we commit to them for a full school year. Our other financial commitments are school year as well. Therefore the program is set up with the expectation and planning that children are enrolled for the school year. In the case of a necessary change:
- Schedule changes need to be in writing (on the form on this website) by the 15th of the month prior to the schedule change. Please use this form found on our website and return to your site director. There is a fee to change the schedule.
- Withdrawal from the program should be in writing (on the form on this website) 45 day prior to withdrawal, i.e.Oct 15 for Dec 1st. There is a fee to withdraw.
Potentially Life-Threatening Allergies & Asthma: if your child has an allergy that requires treatment with an Epi-pen or Benadryl, or asthma requiring treatment with an inhaler, you must provide the following before your child's first day in the program:
- Child health forms
- All necessary medications. Lextended Day staff do not have access to medications left with the school nurse.
Financial Assistance: A limited amount of financial assistance is available to Lextended Day families. We first ask that families apply for state assistance here. Once you have applied you may then apply for Lextended Day funds. Our application can be found below.
Absences: If your child will not attend Lextended Day as scheduled, it is essential that you notify the program site. Please contact the site prior to the start of the program as we take attendance at the beginning of each after-school session. Parents may also wish to send a note to the classroom teacher, but please note that this should be done in addition to and not instead of informing Lextended Day directly. Parents will be contacted if a child does not report to Lextended Day and no message of a change has been received. As we must find out if all children are accounted for each day, parents who consistently do not notify Lextended may forfeit their place in the program
Pick-up: Please instruct your child to always "say goodbye" to his/her teacher before leaving Lextended Day. While we are still getting acquainted, it is also important that children introduce their parents or guardians to the staff at departure time. Children will not be dismissed to anyone other than a parent/guardian unless we have been notified. Please be sure to sign your child out at the end of each day. Parents who consistently pick up late will jeopardize their spot in the program.
Weather & Other Emergency Closings or Evacuations: The program will not operate on any day when the Lexington Public Schools are closed due to bad weather or other emergency conditions. We will also close when the Lexington Public Schools dismiss children prior to the scheduled opening of Lextended Day. Lextended Day closes early due to weather conditions if the Lexington Public Schools closes the buildings. It is essential that parents allow extra commuting time in inclement weather to ensure arrival prior to 6:00 pm and so that our teachers may return safely home to their families as well.
All parents must agree to follow our policies prior to registration and sign off on their agreement on their child's form. The full parent handbook can be found here.
