For Families & Students - Extended Care

Extended Care supports success in school, academically, socially, and physically. This program aims to provide a safe community where students can begin to exercise choice while developing their sense of personal responsibility. Extended Care provides a balance between individual and group activities, quiet study time and homework time as well as time to relax with friends.

Issaquah Hours: Daily from 7 am - 8:50 am, and 3:20 pm - 6 pm; Snoqualmie students using Issaquah morning Extended Care are bussed to Snoqualmie at 7:55am.

A typical afternoon schedule for Extended Care is:

3:20-3:45    Snack, attendance and announcements
3:45-4:15    Active playtime
4:15-5:00    Quiet homework/choice time
5:00-6:00    Free choice time

Snoqualmie Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3pm – 4:10pm.

                                 Wednesday 1:45pm – 3:00pm.

Students attending Extended Care will either be bused to Issaquah right after school for Extended Care or remain in Snoqualmie for Extended Care.  You may pick up your child before 4:10 pm each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday or at 3:00pm each Wednesday.  All students left in Snoqualmie will be bused to the Issaquah campus where you can pick your child up by 6pm each evening.
