Welcome to the Lemon Grove School District's Extended Day Program (E.D.P.)

Thank you for your interest in the Extended Day Program. Did you know that every school within the Lemon Grove School District offers a variety of learning opportunities for students before and after school hours?  Using the After School Education and Safety (A.S.E.S.)grant, principals and staff are offering engaging learning opportunities for students during non-school hours.


2019-2020 Registration for New Incoming Students


How to Apply

Every family interested in participating in the Lemon Grove School District’s Extended Day Program (E.D.P.) during the 2019-2020 school year must attend an open enrollment E.D.P. Registration Session to be considered for enrollment.


E.D.P. Registration Session

Date: Friday, September 20, 2019

Time: 6:00-10:00 AM

Location: Mount Vernon Elementary School

                8350 Mount Vernon St. Lemon Grove, CA 91945


Pertinent information to BRING to the E.D.P. Registration Session:

  1.       Emergency contact information (Authorized adults’ addresses and telephone numbers, as well as your student’s general medical information)
  2.      Evidence of parent or guardian’s active military status (if applicable)
  3.      Evidence of parent or guardian’s full-time employment status (if applicable)
  4.     Evidence of parent or guardian’s full-time student status (if applicable)
  5.      Court Order Custody Documentation (if applicable)


The E.D.P. is FREE of charge to all students enrolled in the Lemon Grove School District. Demand for the Extended Day Program will exceed program capacity at all school sites. Families enrolled in the LGSD who do not attend a registration session in April will be placed at the BOTTOM of the wait list.


 * Before School: Programs are available at every school. The program opens one hour and 30 minutes before the regular school day begins.
After School: Programs begin operating immediately after school is dismissed through 6:00 pm every day school is in session.

Assembly Bill No. 1567: Beginning July 1, 2017, first priority enrollment goes to pupils who are identified as homeless youth, and/or being in foster care.


Enrollment in the E.D.P. is on a year-to-year basis!  Students who are currently enrolled in the program or on a waitlist do NOT automatically rollover into the subsequent year's program.  Every participant interested in utilizing the E.D.P. must re-apply every year to be considered for enrollment.  Submitting an application at the registration session does NOT guarantee enrollment!  Far more students will apply for the program than the allocated spots available.   Space in the E.D.P. varies at each school and is based on the funding that is apportioned from the state.  Once every program reaches capacity, waiting lists are established.  

The EDP honors a "packaged-deal" system.  We will ensure all siblings within an immediate family are admitted into the E.D.P. on the same start date, as long as every participant registered for the E.D.P. during the initial registration period.

   1.  Assembly Bill No. 1567: Beginning July 1, 2017, First priority enrollment goes to pupils who are identified as homeless youth, and/or being in foster care.        
   2.  Second priority for enrollment will be given to students who attend the E.D.P. for the entire duration the program is in operation per the Late Arrival Form and/or Early Release Form.  Priority is given to students who fully utilize the E.D.P. every day, full day!  (One hour and thirty minutes before school begins and/or from the dismissal of school through 6:00 p.m.).
   3.   The total amount of points accrued on the application that was completed during the initial registration period.  (Priority for enrollment will be given to applications rated with the maximum amount of points and last priority will be given to applications rated with zero points.)
   4.   Satisfactory behavior is a daily expectation and requirement.  To be enrolled in the Extended Day Program is a privilege, not a right.  ALL participants are expected to demonstrate satisfactory behavior at the E.D.P.!
