When the school day is over, children may participate in Lowell’s After Care program from 3:15-6:00 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and from 2:00-6:00 pm on Wednesdays. Families may choose to use After Care regularly or on a drop-in basis.
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.
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.
During Parent-Teacher Conferences, childcare is provided free of charge for Lowell students during the time that parents are in the conference. Full day camp is also available (for a fee) for PS and MS students between 8:00-4:00 on Conference Days, as well as Professional Days.
