• Frequently Asked Questions about our Extended School Day Program.

    ESD will closely monitor the constant changes made to mitigate efforts in elementary schools, and we will work closely with the campus administration to create seamless operations between the school day and ESD.

     

    Where does the Extended School Day Program take place?

    The program takes place at the school your child attends.

     

    What are the hours of Extended School Day?

    Extended School Day starts when school is dismissed until 6:30 p.m. each day.

    • The program coincides with the LISD academic calendar; therefore, the program is not in operation during school holidays or school in-service days. 
    • On scheduled LISD Early Release Days, i.e., the last day of school, etc., ESD will start at dismissal time and remain open until 6:30 PM unless communicated otherwise. See the dates below.
      • Friday, December 15, 2023 - ESD will close at 5:00 p.m. for the LISD Winter Break. 
      • Friday, March 8, 2024 - ESD will close at 5:30 p.m. for LISD Spring Break.
    • In the event of early dismissal of school due to inclement weather or emergency closing, the parent/guardian or other designated person will be expected to pick up the child at the announced closing time or as soon as possible. 

     

    What do the children do during Extended School Day?

    A typical day in Extended School Day includes:

    • Snack Time
    • Homework
    • Playground/ Gym time
    • Arts and Crafts
    • Games and Centers 

     

    How do I report my child's absence to ESD?

     Please email or call your ESD campus to inform them of your child's absence. A list of contact information is located on our webpage, ESD Campus Contact Information.

     

    Where do I pick up my child?

    You will pick up your child at the designated ESD entrance. Please ring the doorbell for assistance. Your driver’s License or Photo ID must be readily available when you pick up your child.

     

    How do I add people to my child’s pick-up list?

    Other people can pick up your child once you have added them to your Eleyo account. First, sign in to your account at lisd.ce.eleyo.com. Next, click on manage your online account, then click on your account. Click on manage authorized pickups on the left. Click Add Authorized Pickup, enter the person's name and phone number, and then click Save Authorized Pickup.

    Please note that ESD staff do not have access to your child's Skyward-approved pickup list. You must add them to Eleyo.

     

    Who are the ESD staff?

    Each Extended School Day program site is staffed with an experienced Campus Leader and one or more aides, depending on the program enrollment.  All staff members participate in an orientation, and campus leaders receive monthly in-service training.  

    The ESD staff are typically college students majoring in education, but they can also include high school seniors and retired teachers. ESD staff are Lewisville ISD employees.

    One of our four ESD zone supervisors monitors ESD programs and staff. Click here for the contact information of our ESD Zone Supervisor.

     

    What is the student-to-teacher ratio?

    The average adult-child ratio in the program is 1:18, although it could grow to 1:22 at certain times or for certain activities.

     

    Is there homework time?

    Homework time is built into the beginning of ESD. Our staff will be present to answer questions, but it is up to the child to let them know if they have homework or not. We do not provide one on one tutoring.

     

    What should I send as a snack?

    Beginning August 2024, it is the parent's responsibility to provide a snack and water bottle daily (labeled with the first and last name of the student), as a daily snack is not provided. Healthy snacks are preferred. 

     

    Does ESD offer any scholarships or grants?

    No scholarships or grants are available for ESD students. If your student qualifies for free or reduced lunches, you are eligible to receive the discounted rate for ESD. 

     

    How do I handle questions or concerns?

    • General questions can be directed to our main ESD office, 469-713-5997 or esd@lisd.net
    • Campus-specific concerns should be discussed with your child’s ESD Campus Leader.
    • Please contact your ESD Zone Supervisor if you have additional questions or concerns. Click here for ESD Office staff contact information.

     

    How can I get my ESD Tax Statement?

    Eleyo Tax statements are available on your account, www.lisd.ce.eleyo.com.

    ESD Tax Statement Instructions

    For Procare Tax statements, please email your ESD Accounting Clerk.

     

    How do I withdraw my child from ESD?

    To withdraw a student from ESD, the account holder must submit a withdrawal online via Eleyo. To prevent being charged for the following month's tuition, the withdrawal must be submitted before the 15th of the month prior. The account holder is responsible for all tuition/fees until a withdrawal is submitted in Eleyo, regardless of a child's attendance. Submit a Withdrawal Contract by logging into the Eleyo account and clicking “Account Management.”  If there are any technical issues, please contact the Campus Support Services Office.  Click here for directions.
