Extended Day is for playWestfield Friends School offers extended day hours and vacation day hours to our families. Whenever a student is on our campus outside of the normal school day and is not in the care of their parents and guardians, they must be a part of our Extended Day Program. The school day runs from 8:10 AM until 3:00 PM. Any student entering the building before 8:10AM will be placed in the Extended Day Program.

Anytime a child is on campus after 3:00PM for scheduled tutoring, clubs, or other activities and not with their parents and guardians, they are automatically a part of our Extended Day Program and families will be billed for their child's time spent at school after regular school hours. The Extended Day Program includes a snack, time to play outdoors (weather permitting), and help with homework. 

Morning Extended Day for grades Pre-K through 8th is held in the Atrium from 7:15AM until 8:10AM.  All Pre-K through 8th grade students arriving on campus before 8:10AM must enter through the Atrium entrance and report to the Morning Extended Day Staff in the Atrium. Parents and guardians of children in Pre-K through 2nd grades must park in a parking space and escort their children into the building.
