Extended Care

Managing childcare can be challenging, but ParishEXTEND is here to help.

Extended Care is offered for students in PreK-6th grade from dismissal time to 6:00pm each school day. Additionally, we offer all-day (7:30am to 6:00pm) care on parent-teacher conference days and most faculty work days.

Students attending Extended Care will have snack time, do homework and play with friends. Snacks are available for purchase via enrollment or must be brought from home. Please remember that Hillcrest is a nut-free campus. Midway students have the option to purchase snacks from the PAWS store.

  • Early dismissal days: open until 6:00pm
