Extended Care

The GISW Extended Care Program is provided daily from 3:10 pm to 4:45 pm for students who are in the School Entry Level through ninth grade. Extended Care is an After School Program, which can only be booked for the entire school year, 5 days a week. Group activities and the possibility to complete homework assignments in a quiet environment are the core elements of our program. A teacher brings all bus-riders to the 4:55pm bus and makes sure they get on the correct bus.

On official Early Release days when classes end at 12:15 pm, we offer Extended Care from 12:15 pm to 4:45 pm. To look up Early Release days, please check the school calendar.
