Drop Off & Pick Up

Before School Program

Children are dropped off and checked in any time after 6:30 AM in the classroom located in the back of the school just as you enter the school drop off area. To get behind the school you turn off of Western Ave between the Grange and the Tucker free library. At 7:50 am, just prior to school beginning, White Birch Extended Education staff escort the children to the playground or to the cafetorium for breakfast and dismiss them to an HCS recess or breakfast duty teacher. The children remain there until the bell for school rings.

After School Program

At 3:00 PM when children are released from classes, White Birch after school children walk to the Extended Education Program classroom at Henniker Community School. Younger children are escorted to the classroom by their teachers and older children go right from class to the classroom on their own. If a child is not accounted for, White Birch Extended Education staff call the HCS Office to determine the dismissal plan for that child. When all children are accounted for, After School Programming begins. Programming ends at 6:00 PM but children can be picked up any time after 3:00 PM. To pick up your child, arrive at the after school classroom and sign them out. The after school classroom is located in the back of the school just as you enter the school drop off area. To get behind the school you turn off of Western Ave between the Grange and the Tucker free library.

*Any changes in dismissal for Extended Education children needs to be relayed to the WBC staff prior to the beginning of programming, this include extracurricular activities and sports practices.*
