EXTRAS, Extended Time for Recreational Activities in Salisbury, opened its door in the summer of 1988 because of the foresight of many individuals and businesses in our community who realized the need for a supervised after-school program for children with working parents. EXTRAS is a state-licensed program housed at Salisbury Central School. The program is open through-out the school year, during the summer months and on school holidays. Children are offered crafts and recreational activities, quiet time and nutritional snacks. During the school year a supervised homework period is provided. In the summer the program uses the Town Grove and recreational programs, as well as offering interesting field trips.
EXTRAS is a self-sustaining organization, thanks to fund raising efforts and the generosity of our many contributors. We have been able to respond to all requests for scholarships. No child has been denied for financial reasons. EXTRAS Mission Statement: The primary purpose of EXTRAS is to provide a safe, stimulating, nurturing, and educational environment for young people. EXTRAS strives to ensure an atmosphere where children are encouraged to pursue healthy and wholesome activities within structured guidelines. Utilizing community resources whenever available, EXTRAS seeks to enrich and enhance the lives of our children. All services are provided with the utmost attention to ethical principles and practices.
