If using the ASP on a full-time basis, the cost will be included in the tuition bill. If using the ASP on a part-time or as-needed basis, a bill will be sent home at the beginning of each month for the previous month’s After School Program (ASP) usage. Full payment is due upon receipt and must be paid no later than the 15 th of the following month.
Inappropriate behavior will not be permitted. Release from the program will result from receiving three (3) written discipline notices or at the principal’s discretion.
No Tolerance Policy
There is a no tolerance policy in our program. Children who experience repeated discipline problems in the classroom will not be allowed to participate in the After School Program (ASP); as per the discretion of the homeroom teacher and/or principal.
Please send your child into school with a healthy snack on all full days, and a healthy lunch on all half days.
Children are permitted to change into appropriate play clothes. Please ensure that your child has proper outerwear (jacket, hat, scarf, gloves) on cold weather days.
Dismissal from Homeroom
A note from a parent must be presented to each student's homeroom teacher advising that their child(ren) will be going to After School Program (ASP) at dismissal time.
Due to safety and legal concerns children must be released by an After School Program Assistant. Children will be released only to those persons indicated on the enrollment form as having permission to pick up the child. If you are late picking up your child, a late fee will be charged. After three tardies your child will be released from the program.
Change in Transportation Arrangements
In any case where a child is to be transported by anyone other than the parent or guardian, written permission must be provided for the day or general permission for the purpose.
A parent or guardian will be called to pick up a child who is sick or injured. Medicine will not be administered without written permission from the parent or legal guardian.
