Families staying or using playground after school ends:
Parents are responsible for watching their children while they’re on the school grounds once they have picked them up and they are not in extended care. Parents are responsible for making sure their children are safe and follow the rules of the playground. Parents need to be aware of the Kindergarten Prep playground rules which apply at all times. For the safety and enjoyment of all students, the playground will be open to Kindergarten Prep families after school until 4:15 p.m. After 4:15 p.m., the playground will be reserved for extended care use only until 6:00 p.m. The playground at Renton Prep is a public playground and Renton Prep assumes no responsibility for any Renton Prep student except those who are signed into the Extended Care program.
School Issued and Personal devices in extended care:
Students are allowed to bring their digital devices to extended care for readiness work and project use, students must have a laptop carrying case to transport their digital device. All of the same Acceptable Use Policy Guidelines apply in extended care. Digital devices may be used to complete work related to school goals and once completed may be used for personal interests once permission is given by the extended care supervisor.
Children with no Readiness Work in extended care:
We suggest that parents who have their children in extended care after school for more than 1 hour, provide their children with other materials that they can work with while waiting. While a student may not have readiness work, this time is a great opportunity to work on skills and make additional progress.
We are requesting that for children who stay longer than 1 hour at least 3-4 times per week that they have a supply of pencils, crayon & markers for extended care. This is especially applicable to Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. All students need to have a supply of pencils and paper as well when staying in extended care.
Our overall goals for extended care supported by the extended care teachers is for the children to have a productive, fun & safe time while waiting for their parents. We appreciate parent partnership in this and making this time a great time to reinforce classroom learning and skills.
