ESCaPE: Before/After Care
Extracurriculars, Student Care and Programs for Education (ESCaPE) is our before and after school childcare program for K-Grade 8 students enrolled in our school.
Before School/Morning Care
The morning program runs from 6:15am-7:30am (no drop-ins). Parents may drop-off according to their own schedule. Morning Care includes breakfast (if requested in advance). Morning Care provides time for free play, physical activity and homework. Students are occupied with arts, crafts, games, individual play, indoor and outdoor time, reading and quiet time.
After School/Afternoon Care
The afternoon program goes from dismissal at 2:40pm until 6:00pm. Parents pick-up according to their own schedule. Afternoon Care includes a snack. Afternoon Care provides time for free play, physical activity and homework. Students are occupied with arts, crafts, games, individual play, indoor and outdoor time, reading and quiet time.
Scheduling is done via email or phone call.
Students may attend every day or with flexibility, such as around a sports schedule. ESCaPE operates throughout the school year (no summer care). ESCaPE is available on late start and early release days, as well as RLS No School days.
Download and review the ESCaPE Handbook for a detailed explanation of the program.
Inclement Weather Policy
When Rochester Public Schools (RPS) announces a school closing prior to the start of the school day OR during the school day, our ESCaPE programs (morning or afternoon) will be canceled. If RPS closes after Morning ESCaPE has opened, parents will be called to return to our location to pick up students as soon as possible.
