Before School/ Extended Day

Need a few more hours in your day and want a safe place for your student to play and learn? Catherine Cook's Before School and Extended Day Programs provide a supervised, consistent, and familiar place for students to go.

Unlike other co-curriculars, Before School and Extended Day are available every single day that school is in session!

UPDATES for 2017-2018 are COMING SOON! We have some exciting changes coming for next year. Details will be published soon. If you have questions in advance, please email Blaire Strom, Director of Co-Curricular Programs, at bstrom@ccookschool.org.

Before School (7:30 - 8:00 a.m.)

The official school opening time is 7:45 a.m. However, students may enter the building as early as 7:30 a.m. All Early Childhood and Lower School students arriving prior to 8:00 a.m. and Middle School students arriving prior to 7:45 a.m. must report immediately to the Lunchroom for supervised morning care. All students will be dismissed from the Lunchroom to their classrooms by 8:00 a.m. (7:45 a.m. for Middle School students). No student should be on campus prior to 7:30 a.m. as proper supervision is not available.

Extended Day (2:45 - 6:00 p.m.)

For Drop-ins, please email extday@ccookschool.org

Extended Day is from 2:45-6:00 p.m. and is a service provided by the school for families that need supervision for their children after regular school dismissal.

Extended Day Drop-in Option

The Drop-in option is for families who do not consistently use Extended Day. To drop-in, email extday@ccookschool.org and your child's teacher by 2:00 p.m. the day you would like to drop in. All fees are charged per child and are based on the time you pick up.

Drop-in signup for the 2017-2018 school year will be through My BackPack. Check back June 2017 for details or email Lindsey Pearson, Extended Day Coordinator & Co-Curricular Support, at lpearson@ccookschool.org for more information.

Extended Day Trimester Option

Students attending Extended Day on a regular basis should be registered by Trimester through My BackPack. Registration for Fall 2017 will open August 2017.
