Extended Day

Extended Day is open on school days until 6:00 p.m. Students have the opportunity to complete homework and participate in outdoor and indoor activities appropriate for their developmental level. Extended Day is available to all MKA students. Along with the daily Extended Day activities, children may be offered a variety of after-school classes.
