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

Here is some important information about the winter term of the B.A.S.E. program:

    • The Winter term begins the week of January 3 and ends the week of March 7.

    • 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.
        • 3-4: 3:45-4:30 p.m.

    • Extended Day pickup times are 3:45 p.m. (PS only), 4:30 p.m., or 5:30 p.m. (You may pick up your son at any time before your registered pick-up time). 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, particularly in the winter months, please consider that space this winter in Extended Day is limited and priority will be given to those families with no alternate childcare.
