Extended Care Program

*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


Extended Care is not offered in Snoqualmie and as the bus leaves prior to the rest of the students being dismissed, please make certain that you call the Snouqalmie office early in the day to give alternate pick up instructions for your student.

Extended Care is also available on some days when there is no school, on most early dismissal days, and on a drop-in basis, according to availability. Extended Care is available for Preschool students after they reach their 5th birthday.
