Nurturing After-School Environment
At the close of the school day, students who are not picked up by 3:30 p.m. go to the After-School Program. This program is available until 5:30 p.m. on regular school and early dismissal days.
Activities for grades 1 – 6 include supervised homework, sustained silent reading, educational games, puzzles, and computer time on designated days. K4 and K5 students participate in songs and movement, read-alouds, shared writing activities and arts and crafts. All students have scheduled recess.
Students in the After-School Program are provided an afternoon snack. Parents may elect to send a snack with their child if they so choose. Students remaining at school for an extracurricular activity only are encouraged to bring their own snack. The After-School Program doesn’t provide snacks for students attending an extracurricular activity only.
The full-time After-School Program fee is $160.00 per month, per child. Part-time is available as needed for $15.00 per day and $22.50 per day on 2 p.m. Early Dismissal Days. If a student stays in the After-School Program after 5:30 p.m., the parent will be assessed a late fee of $10.00 per child for the first 15 minutes or less. A $1.00 per minute charge begins at the 16th minute for any child picked up after 5:30 p.m. This late fee will also be charged on early dismissal days if students are picked up later than 15 minutes after dismissal time.
No student will be released from the After-School Program to any person without prior contact with a parent or guardian granting permission. All students in the After-School Program must be signed out, with the time out recorded each day by the person picking them up. Failure to sign out a student results in a charge for the entire day.
