Extended School Day

Sanford School is proud to provide quality and thoughtful after-school care for students in preschool through eighth grade, Monday through Friday, until 5:30 PM*. Our qualified staff provide a relaxed yet safe and structured environment where students play, complete homework, and enjoy an after school snack.

For the 2020-2021 school year, students will remain physically distanced from other pods in a way that mirrors the regular school day.

All Lower School pods (PS-4th grade) will have their "home base" within the LS classrooms. Pickup will be curbside outside the main entrance to the LS. 
All Middle School pods (5th-8th grade) will have their "home base" within the MS classrooms. Pickup will be curbside in the circle outside the main entrance to the MS.

Please have your name tag visible in your front windshield and a staff member will escort your child to your car upon your arrival. If you need to pickup before 5:00 PM, please call one of these numbers to arrange details with our team.
