Extended Day Can Make a Difference

  • Extended Day Programs are in place at Howell Graves Preschool, Highland Park Elementary, Webster Elementary, McBride Elementary and Muscle Shoals Middle School.  EDP operates every day and follows the same calendar as the school system.  Extended Day is offered as a service to working parents who need care for their children in grades K-6.  The goal of the Muscle Shoals City Schools Community Education Program is to provide enrichment opportunities that extend past the regular school day in a secure enrironment during the after school hours.  The Extended Day Program maintains an adult to child ratio that provides student safety while offering the warmth each child needs to grow and mature.  During the after school hours, students work on homework, engage in indoor and outdoor recreation activities, take part in enrichment activities (depending upon the school site) such as art, cooking, soccer, STEM enrichment, and dance.  Space in the Extended Day Program is very limited!  Enrollment forms can be picked up at the Muscle Shoals Board of Education in the Community Education Office Building.
