We are so excited to announce that we are finally moving to Plan A!!
The After School Program will begin operating 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) for all students in March. The transition schedule is as follows:
- K thru 2nd Grade may begin attending the program 4 days a week starting the week of March 8th.
- 3rd thru 5th Grade may begin attending the program 4 days a week starting the week of March 22nd.
- Middle School students will remain on Plan B.
At this time we are suspending registration for the program due to the change in school schedule from Plan B to Plan A. Due to current staffing there may be waiting lists at some sites when registration does open.
When registration reopens, students may only be registered to attend 2 days a week or 4 days a week. You may view the fees for these option by clicking on the link below:
The mission of the Watauga County Schools' Extended Learning Centers is to promote the academic mission of Watauga County Schools while providing the working parents of our community a sanctuary of safety as well as intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being for their children. It is the staff's intent to inspire each child to his or her highest potential while providing a fun and positive atmosphere.
Hours of Operation
The Extended Learning Center after school program offers supervised educational, recreational, and enrichment activities 2:30-6:00 p.m. for Watauga County Schools students in grades K-5 at each elementary school. We open at 12:00 on scheduled early release days, but do not operate on holidays, teacher work days, or when schools are closed or dismissed early due to inclement weather. A holiday/work day/snow day program is available at Hardin Park for most of these situations. Each after school site is licensed as a school-age child care program by the NC Division of Child Development.
