Before & After School Activities

Before School Programming

Drop-off for JLES morning care is in the cafeteria on Gallatin Street, beginning at 7:30 a.m. Children will meet our morning care team and join their peer groups for activities. Students must be dropped off by 8:15am or they will have to enter the building at 8:40am with the rest of the students.


Our program is currently at capacity; however, you may sign up to be added to our waitlist and will be notified if a seat becomes available. If you are interested in registering for the program, please complete this link:

Afterschool Playground Usage 

As a reminder, the school grounds (including the playground and facilities in the school building, like bathrooms) are for school use only during the hours of 8:00am to 6:00pm. JLES has before- and after-school programs that use these facilities and, as I am sure you can understand given recent events, it is an issue of safety to have students not participating in afterschool programming on campus after they have been dismissed.
