Please review the following extended care options PRD provides during the school year.

Schoolmates (Grades TK–5)

Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday from 3:00–6:00 pm ; Wednesdays 1:45–6:00 pm

Schoolmates is a play based program that provides after-school care for elementary school-aged children (TK–5th Grades) during the academic school year. At Schoolmates, children learn teamwork and cooperation, while developing intellectually, physically, and creatively through structured recreational and educational activities.

SM Konnex (Grade TK–5)

Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday from 2:00–3:00 pm (limited registration on Wednesdays from 1:45–3:00 pm)

SM Konnex is a one-hour play based program specifically designed for children who are released from school at 2:00 pm. This program meets from 2:00–3:00 pm (on Wednesdays due to the PUSD Bell Schedule, with early release for all at 1:45 pm, there is limited registration).

1st–3rd GradesDuring the first few weeks of school, the PUSD Bell Schedule is scheduled to conclude at 2:00 pm (through Labor Day). If you are planning on registering for Schoolmates/Minimates from 3:00–6:00 pm, you will also need to register for SM Konnex. 

Program Note: At the time of online registration, all entries for SM Konnex will be automatically placed on a waitlist. PRD staff will enroll and prioritize students based on Schoolmates/Minimates enrollment, in timestamp order, until July 29th. After this time, registration will open to the public, pending availability. 

PRD staff will confirm via email, your child's enrollment in SM Konnex. Please make sure that you have a stored payment option on file to complete the transaction (see Program Hours & Tuition Payments tile for details). Failure to do so may result in not securing a spot at SM Konnex.

Schoolmates / SM Konnex programs are located at each of the three elementary schools in Piedmont: Beach, Havens, and Wildwood.

PRD's Minimates program is designed specifically for PUSD transitional kindergarten (TK) students.
