Support Along the Way

Early and Late Bird Program

EARLY BIRD

Early Bird is a voluntary extension of the school day available to all students. Doors open at 7:00 AM for Early Bird and it runs until a student's first class. Early Bird provides a place for students to complete homework and quietly socialize with friends in a structured, supervised environment. Students are required to follow all school disciplinary rules during this time. Students are not allowed to leave the designated area before the start of the student's scheduled classes. There is no fee for Early Bird.

LATE BIRD

Late Bird is a voluntary, fee-based extension of the school day for all students. Students will be provided a quiet academic environment to complete homework and quietly socialize with friends in a structured, supervised environment.

Schedule: Late Bird begins the first day of school and continues throughout the school year. There is Late Bird every full school day, including the days before school breaks, and on early release days.

Time: Late Bird is available to all students and is scheduled Monday through Friday, 2:45 PM to 6:00 PM during the regular school days and until 3:00 PM on early release days.

Office Hours: Students are permitted to sign in to Late Bird free of charge while waiting to attend student office hours. If students return to Late Bird after attending student office hours they will be charged a drop-in fee, unless they have pre-paid.

Extracurricular Activities: Students are permitted to sign in to Late Bird free of charge while waiting to attend an extracurricular activity. If students return to Late Bird after attending an extracurricular activity they will be charged a drop-in fee, unless they have pre-paid.

Meal Service

BASIS Independent Silicon Valley offers a healthy meal program for our students from Choicelunch.

We are excited to serve the families of BASIS Independent Silicon Valley and we hope you are too. We thank you and appreciate your business. For over 11 years now, Choicelunch has been serving up the best school lunches in the Bay Area and the state, by offering families wholesome food choices using locally-sourced, all-natural and organic ingredients such as seasonal fruits and veggies, antibiotic and hormone-free meats, and 100% whole-grain breads baked daily. If it's in our fruit and veggie bin and it's on the Dirty Dozen list, it's either organic or confirmed pesticide-free from the source. We have nothing to hide and our parents have access to the nutritional analysis and allergen information online. Our program and facility is 100% nut free and our menu offers your children 12 entrée choices per day (4 hot and 8 cold) made fresh in our kitchens daily. At school, Choicelunch kids are empowered to make healthy choices from our daily assortment of fresh fruits or vegetables and drinks (milk, water, juice). Our menu always provides for children that are vegetarian or require meals that are free of the top eight allergies including gluten free and dairy free.

Constantly innovating, we were the first company to develop an iPhone and Android apps for parents to order, cancel, and filter allergens for their children's lunches!

We have designed our own biobased lunch containers, sporks and fruit bags and are a Bay Area Certified Green.
