Westfield Friends School offers extended 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 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Any student entering the building before 8:00 AM will be placed in the Extended Day Program and charged according to the parents fee plan choice..
Anytime a child is on campus after 3:00PM for scheduled tutoring, clubs, or other activities and not with their parents, 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 time for a snack, time to play outdoors (weather permitting), and help with homework.
Morning Extended Day for Preschool students is 7:30AM until 8:00 AM in the Preschool Building.
Morning Extended Day for grades Pre-K through 8th will be held from 7:30AM until 8:00 AM outside. All Pre-K through 8th grade students arriving on campus before 8:00 AM will be met by Extended Day staff on the backside of the atrium/auditorium. Parents should enter the property by using the driveway closest to Route 130 and driving through the cemetery on the ribbons. Before your child exits the car, the morning Extended Day staff person will take your child’s temperature and if all is well assist your child out of the car. Students in the after school program will also be dismissed on the backside of the atrium/auditorium. Please use the same procedure for entering the property.
During morning Extended Day for Pre-K through 8th grade, students are welcome to prepare for their day by relaxing with a book, studying, and quietly socializing with friends. Students will be dismissed to the classroom teacher at 8:00AM.
