Extended Day Sign Up
If you need after care we are planning to offer our Extended School Day (ESD) Program during school days. This program is offered as part of tuition to all students in grades PreS-8 who attend St. Michael's. The ESD program provides flexibility for parents who have to work. The ESD program will look a little different this year, but we remain committed to providing a positive experience for the students in our care. You can find more information about ESD in our Reopening Manual at this link; https://rb.gy/t7a21l 

Registration for ESD is required for this year and will occur in increments of 2 weeks. You can register using the below links;

 

Please Note: We ask that you provide at least 24 hours notice and notify Deborah Perez at dperez@smcds.org if your after care needs change. 

Items from Home: Students may bring items from home to use during ESD that fit into a clear plastic gallon bag. Due to covid, items cannot be shared between students. 

We appreciate your efforts to adhere to the guidelines above. Thank you for your commitment to keeping our school community safe.
