Extended Day Registration for 2021-22 School Year Opens May 25


Extended Day is planning for normal operations for the 2021-22 school year and registration will begin May 25. However, COVID-19 restrictions and precautions could affect Extended Day opening and/or capacity.

PHASE 1: May 25 – June 8
Registration opens for students who were enrolled* in the Extended Day after school session for the 2020-21 school year. Siblings of students enrolled last year, who were not in Extended Day, may also register at this time. Families registering during this period will participate in a lottery and receive a family enrollment number:

  • If Extended Day is able to operate at normal, pre-pandemic capacities: all students registered during this period will be **conditionally enrolled.
  • If Extended Day must operate at reduced capacity: students will be enrolled in order of their lottery-determined enrollment number until capacity at each grade level is reached. Remaining students will be placed on a wait list.

*Extended Day was closed during the 2020-21 school year. However, registration was conducted, and students were enrolled prior to the closure.
**Please note: If program capacity decreases at a late date due to COVID-related protocols, Extended Day may have to “unenroll” students to meet limited capacity. In this case, enrollment would be based on lottery number as described above.

Families can contact the Extended Day office to confirm if they were enrolled during the 2020-21 school year.

PHASE 2: June 9 – June 23
Registration opens for all students. Families registering during this period will participate in a lottery and be assigned a family enrollment number. Students will be enrolled, in order of the family enrollment number, if space is available. Otherwise they will be placed on the waitlist in order of enrollment number.

Families who register after June 23 will be placed at the end of the waitlist if their school has reached capacity, in the order that their registration is received.

PLEASE NOTE:  To enroll in Extended Day for the upcoming year, the family account cannot have a past-due balance.
