After School Programs

LKS is happy to be working with after-school programs to provide an array of fun and engaging learning opportunities for our students. Please note that these programs are not affiliated with the Before and After school program operating in the school. These programs are not affiliated with LKS, including supervision. The companies permit out the space and we assist in providing information to parents only.
