After Care

COVID-19 Update

After Care is being offered for the 2021–22 school year, with students participating in grade-level groups.

After Care

When the school day is over, children may participate in Lowell’s After Care program from 3:15–6:00 pm for Pre-Primary and Primary School and 3:30 pm–6:00 pm for Middle School on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Wednesdays, care is provided from 2:00–6:00 pm for all ages.

Families may choose to use After Care regularly or on a drop-in basis.

After Care enrollment forms can be found in your parent account on the Lowell website. You can sign up After Care at any point during the year, but Lowell cannot guarantee that space will be available by the start of school if you do not sign up by August 6, 2021.

To use After Care on a drop-in basis, families need to register via the After Care Drop-in link no later than noon on the day they wish to use drop-in care so that proper staffing can be ensured.

After Care Programs

List of 4 items.

  • Pre-Primary + Primary School After Care

    The goal of After Care is to provide a safe, caring, and enjoyable atmosphere for children, where they can play, make choices, and hone social skills under the guidance of caring adults. Participants have opportunities to engage in a variety of indoor and outdoor games, and activities that take advantage of mixed-age groupings. A healthy snack is provided. Children who have homework are provided with a supervised quiet room to complete their assignments. There is quiet time for K-1 students, 30 minutes of reading for students in 2nd-5th grades, as well as homework help from an After Care staff person.
  • Middle School After Care

    The After Care program for Middle School students is a homework club where students can complete homework in a quiet environment with peer assistance or adult help, as needed. A healthy snack is served upon arrival. Snack is followed by a brief period of down time with friends before beginning homework.
