What Parents Need to Know


    Stanton-Weirsdale Elementary houses the Community Extended Day Program for students before and after school. This program is offered through the Marion County School Board's Community Education Department. Registration is during hours of operation.


    The Extended Day program provides before and after school supervision for our students at a reasonable fee. The program is operated through the Community Education Center of the Marion County School Board. Students arriving at school before 7:20 must enroll in our Extended Day Program. If students eat breakfast at school, they may arrive at 7:20. Students remaining on campus after 2:35 must also be enrolled in our Extended Day Program. Any child who is not picked up after 2:35 p.m. will be taken to our Extended Day program and charged a fee. If you have any questions please call 671-6265.
