After School Programs Procedures and Policies

ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES

Remembering to attend the class is the responsibility of the student. The PTA makes every effort to inform the teachers of after-school activities, but the teachers cannot be responsible for remembering each student's schedule each day of the week. Please help your child by reminding them each day they have an enrichment class.

PICK UPS FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLASS

PLEASE note the times for each class and know when to pick up your child. Late pickups cannot be accommodated and children may be removed from a class for repeated late pickups. Teachers and staff are not responsible for enrichment classes, and most have left for the day by the time classes are dismissed. Therefore, there is no one in the school who can take responsibility for your child beyond the contracted class time. Emergencies happen, so plan ahead to have someone able to pick up your child on time if the need arises.

NO CLINIC ACCESS AFTER SCHOOL

PLEASE note that the school clinic is not open during before and after school activities. If there is any health issue/concern with your kid, please notify your after school class teacher. For example  Epinephrine is not available. If your child might suffer an anaphylactic allergic reaction and need epinephrine, please make arrangements for a trained adult to attend the before or after school program with your child's Epi-Pen at the ready. Your PTA wants to make sure your child is safe.     

BEHAVIOR POLICY

Students are expected to behave in a manner that respects the instructors and other students as well as school property.  If the instructor identifies a problem in this area, the instructor will contact the parents and notify them of the problem.  If the behavior is not corrected, the instructor will notify the parents and the student will not be allowed to continue to attend the class.  No refund will be given.

REFUND REQUEST PROCEDURE AND POLICY

Refund requests must be submitted in writing (email) to the program coordinator before the first meeting of the class. After the first day of class, no refunds will be considered except in extreme or extenuating circumstances and at the discretion and approval of the PTA. If a refund is approved, the PTA will issue a check to the parent account holder on file for the cost of the class minus a 10% processing fee. In the event of a late registration, program fees will not be prorated for missed classes. In the event of a cancellation, the full fee will be refunded.

DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

1. DISMISSAL TO AN AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITY: Please have your child go to the cafeteria (except GEMS whose meeting places will be specified by the teacher) to sign in for his/her class each week. If your child usually goes to SACC, please have him/her go to SACC and we will pick him up there. Your student’s teacher will receive a copy of the Afterschool Activities Roster, which will list your student’s name, activity and dates/times of participation.

2. PICKING UP FROM AN AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITY: Parents/Guardians need to plan ahead and adjust their student’s pick-up arrangements on Afterschool Activity days. Students will be in their assigned activity space. You will be expected to sign out your student at the end each class. If you are more than 10 minutes late, a late fee will be assessed.

3. DISMISSAL TO SACC: SACC will receive a Roster of students registered for Activities. Students who are normally dismissed to SACC will be sent to SACC at the end of the school day. Students must check-in at SACC.
