Communicating changes in pickup after enrichment classes

If your child has a change in pick up procedures, please contact the instructors directly by email to notify the instructor of the change. In addition, please provide a note of the change to your child, so that your child may bring the note to the instructor or extended care front desk staff.

All notes are required to have the following information:

  • date

  • your child’s name

If you cannot arrive on time to pick up your child, please notify your class instructor and extended care front desk staff. If you are not able to pick up your child, your child will be checked into extended day. (fees will apply)

Professional Development for our Extended Care Providers

Staff recently received training on equity for each of our students in the extended day program and decoding student behavior. Each student that comes to extended day brings along their own learning behaviors and it is important that our staff know how to support each and every one. LOSD is committed to creating safe and equitable learning environments, and as such we will continue to bring strategies into our extended day classrooms.
