Lower School Aftercare

In recognition of the fact that not all families have the option to have their child(ren) picked up at school by 3:15 p.m., the Lower School provides After Care services for Lower School students. The service is essentially structured by the grade level of the student. He or she may play outside on any available space, take part in recreational reading or research, or utilize other facilities if the appropriate supervision is available.

After Care may not be available during the first days of school due to the nature of Preview Days and the staggered starting days. The After Care starting date will be posted on the school calendar. Children are welcome to attend After Care on all days that school is in session, with a few exceptions; those details are included in the school calendar.


Each day that your child signs in to After Care, he or she will be able to work on homework and other school projects, read a personal book, participate in art activities and group games, and play outside. Students should bring an extra snack for After Care. Snacks will not be provided. Each group will rotate through a designated schedule, allowing time for indoor play, recess outdoors, and homework or quiet work time.


After Care is provided daily, 3:15 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., for all Lower School students, Junior Spartans through fifth grade. Students will be separated into groups based on their grade levels. They will have one to two staff members with them from the time school ends until they are picked up by 6:00 p.m. Parents will meet the After Care lead in the Lower School lobby to check their child(ren) out each day.

Students who are not picked up by the end of the afternoon car line at 3:40 p.m. will sign in to After Care. Students who attend a special interest club can either check directly in to After Care immediately following their club or will check in to After Care following the club car line that ends at 4:30 p.m.


Lauren Leonard is the contact person for After Care. She will facilitate After Care sign-up throughout the school year. Bonnie Saas, the lead After Care staff member, will sign students in and out of After Care. She will be your direct line of contact each afternoon while your child(ren) is/are in After Care. She can be reached by calling 865-291-3846.

Each group of students will have one to two staff members supervising them. These staff members are adults, college students, and Upper School students.

Days when Lower School After Care will NOT be provided are posted on the school calendar.
