Extended Day

Extended Day at Lab provides opportunities for your child to connect with friends, discover and develop interests, and relax before and after school. Extended Day is designed to provide students with constructive, intentional, and meaningful opportunities to engage socially with one another, creatively with materials and concepts, and civically in the life of the Schools and community. Extended Day brings all of this to life within the familiar and enriching school environment you have chosen for your child.

Extended Day at Earl Shapiro Hall will remain streamlined and follow the homeroom cohort model that was in place during the 2020–2021 school year. We highly recommend all Nursery 3 families register for Extended Day now. We will not be able to guarantee Extended Day services for any Nursery 3 families that register after the fall registration window closes. 

Extended Day at the Historic Campus will return to pre-COVID offerings including Special classes. The Special class schedule and registration will be provided in late August.
