Staff Day Programs

A trip to the Science Museum, a scavenger hunt, a puppet show, a winter “beach day” – these are some of the many fun and educational programs or field trips children can enjoy on Yom Kef -Staff Day.

On days when there are no classes due to teachers participating in professional development programs, staff meetings or conferences with parents, the Afterschool program offers full and half-day activities for students in grades K-8. 

Special programs might include International New Year Festival, Fall Harvest Festival, Exxcel, JCC, Boston Scavenger, Community Service, Thanksgiving Feast and holiday celebrations

  • Full Staff Days are from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Half Staff Days are from 11:25 a.m. (Lower School)/11:40 a.m. (Upper School) - 3 p.m.
  • There will be regular Extended Day from 3-6:15/6:30 p.m. staff days unless otherwise noted.
  • If your child is enrolled in Extended Day for 4 or 5 days a week, there is no charge for staff days. If a field trip is offered, there will be a small cost.
