AFTER SCHOOL CLUB IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The After School Club is in place for students whose parents are unable to pick them up on time after school due to work, or unforeseen circumstances.  The ASC is not for play dates or for siblings of students involved in sports events at the school.  If your child is not involved in a sport activity and a parent is not present to supervise their own child, the child must be picked up at the regular school dismissal time.  All students MUST sign-in with the ASC Supervisor and must stay with the ASC group at all times.  Parents must note that there is a charge for any student attending the After School Club.

STUDENT SAFETY

For the safety of all students, we ask that parents please supervise their children at all times.  We ask that parents do not allow students to climb the fence or play in the area designated for Shotput or Long Jump.  As stated above, if your child is not involved in a sport activity at the school, they are to be picked up at the regular school dismissal time.  If you are unable to pick up your child, he/she will be sent to the After School Club and must remain there until a parent picks up.  There will be a $5 per hour or portion of the hour.  Thank you for your cooperation.
