Starting a new school can be a difficult time for these young students and parents. There is a lot of information to learn in a short amount of time. We are here to help you through the process. Welcome to Highlands School! I am pleased to tell you about our Extended Day 4K program. After the regular 4K day, our extended 4K staff stays on to create a structured, enriching, and fun afternoon for your children. The plan consists of developmentally appropriate, play-based activities that reinforce the morning program, character development and other enrichment activities. We enjoy helping your children continue to build their social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language skills.
The students eat lunch, rest, and may have some afternoon activities in their own 4K classroom. At 3:00pm, they will either go to carpool, the bus, or join the other students in the Extended Day Program which will be tailored toward their age group. Children will also have the opportunity to sign up for EDP After School Activities!
4K Parent Information:
- If picking up a student prior to 3:00 p.m., go to the front office to check your child out.
- Children eat lunch in the 4K classroom. Students may order milk and/or lunch through our food service program or bring lunch from home.
- Children will be resting on cots/mats. They may bring a small blanket and a very small stuffed animal. Please do not send sleeping bags/large mats or large “stuffies.”
- If your child will be staying past 3:00pm, please send a healthy snack and try to separate afternoon snacks from morning snacks and lunch.
