B.A.S.E. Spring 2022 Course Catalog

Here is some important information about the spring term of the B.A.S.E. program:
    • The Spring term begins the week of March 28 and ends the week of May 23.

    • Unless otherwise noted, all B.A.S.E. activities are run out of the Pre School building and all boys will be dismissed from the Pre School.

    • The Encore schedule for each grade Mon-Thurs is as follows. Please be mindful of our staggered dismissal times. If you are early, please do not block the driveway as it will disrupt other dismissals. 

        • PK-K: 3:00-3:45 p.m.
        • 1-2: 3:35-4:20 p.m.

Please be mindful of other dismissals happening on campus and do not leave your car unattended blocking the dismissal line. You may add Extended Day on top of an Encore activity, and will not be "double charged" if you need a later pick-up. Due to space restrictions, please consider that space this spring in Extended Day is limited and priority will be given to those families with no alternate childcare.
