Families with children in grades K through 5 may enroll them in Foote’s After School Program on Mondays through Fridays from dismissal until 5:30 p.m. for an additional fee of $25 per day. Children enjoy a warm, relaxed atmosphere with a choice of indoor and outdoor options for free play or creative activities, and have use of the gymnasium, library, art studios and technology lab. Thoughtful, caring supervision provides continuity with the school day. Minicourses such as yoga, baking and chess are offered in fall, winter and spring, and individual music lessons are offered throughout the year. Older students not participating in after-school sports may remain on campus under After School supervision for a one-time fee of $100.
Families receiving financial aid receive an equivalent percentage of aid toward After School costs.
