2020-2021 Extended Day Essential Care Program (EDECP) FAQ

What is EDECP?

Extended Day Essential Care Program (2020-2021) will be offered as an after-school program for families who need care until 5:45 PM.  The program will be a time for older students to do homework and study and will provide care and consistency for the younger group.  Snacks will be provided just as they have been in the past.  We are requiring that families register their students by Monday, August 10 to help us plan the space and staff needed for the program.  The first day of EDECP will be Thursday, August 20.  

The program will follow all the current COVID-19 guidelines and protocols that are in place for the regular school day including masking when moving, social distancing, safety and frequent sanitation.  

What does EDECP look like for my preschool and kindergarten student(s)?

Like last years Extended Day Enrichment Program. EDECP will mirror the school day for children in preschool with consistent, high-quality care. In groups of 10, students will enjoy individual activities, have a snack, play outdoors, and have story time.  

What does EDECP look like for my students(s) in grade 1-8?

While maintaining social distance, students in groups of 10,  will have time to work on homework, have a snack, play outdoors, and participate in individual activities.

How is EDECP different from traditional Extended Day Enrichment Program?
