You must be a member of the PTA in order for your child to participate in After-School Clubs.

Club Rules and Procedures

At school dismissal, students participating in Clubs will assemble in the cafeteria with a monitor. The monitor will take attendance and remain with students until the instructor arrives. Teachers are given a list of all students in their class who participate in Clubs and will direct those students to the cafeteria at dismissal.

Please also remind your child if he/she has a Club that day.

If your child is in school, but will not be attending his/her Club on a particular day, you must send a note to the teacher explaining the change for that day. You must also send a note to the After School Club Monitor stating that your child will not be attending his/her Club. This is necessary to ensure the whereabouts and safety of your child and to save unnecessary phone calls to track down a child who is not accounted for.

Pick-Up Procedure

We will be dismissing clubs the same way the regular school day is dismissed. Parents are to line up in their car, remaining in the car. Parents are not permitted to enter the front entrance of the building. At the end of the session at 4:15, Club instructors will escort students to the cafeteria and back entrance of the school. Students will remain with the monitor by the doors until parents drive up to the door and pick them up. Please be on time, dismissal is promptly at 4:15. Excessive tardiness (more than twice) will result in dismissal of your child from the Club and the fee forfeited.

The behavior of your child enrolled in an After School Club must be consistent with the proper behavior expected in the classroom during normal school hours and all school policies (including the policy on bringing phones to school) must be followed. Clubs are for the enjoyment of your children and while we do not anticipate misbehavior, we reserve the right to dismiss a disruptive student from a Club at any time. If a student’s behavior is repeatedly disruptive and affects the functioning of the club, the student’s parents/guardians will be put on notice. If the disruption continues, the student may be removed from all future sessions of the club and no refund will be given. We thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

There is no nurse on duty during the After School Clubs. If your child requires any special medication, please make sure they carry it with them and they know how to administer it to themselves.
