After School Care Program
The After School Care Program (ASC) is a supervised time for children every regularly scheduled school day from 3:45-6:00 p.m. The purpose of this program is to provide a safe, flexible, and well-staffed environment for those students who cannot be picked up by 3:45 p.m. each day.
The afternoon will begin with a snack brought from home. Lower School children work on homework, play board games, play on the playground, organize ball games, or just rest and relax. Children are outdoors, weather permitting. For their comfort, some children may want to change into play clothes. If so, please provide appropriate play clothes for your child. Sweaters or jackets are advisable on cooler days. When indoors, quiet activities or appropriate videos will be available.
Middle School students will go to the Upper Library daily at 4:00 p.m., where they will be given time to work on homework. At 5:30 p.m. the students will go back outside to play. Fourth graders will have the opportunity to attend the optional study hall with the Middle School students.
Children in grades K – 8 who are left on the campus after 3:45 p.m. will be assigned to After School Care. Parents will be billed accordingly. Middle School students participating in the athletic program or working with a member of the faculty must leave campus at the end of that activity or they, too, will be assigned to ASC.
The fee for this program is $14 per day for days actually attended. Monthly statements based on actual attendance will be mailed at the end of the month, payable upon receipt. The charge will not be pro-rated by the hour, half-hour, quarter-hour, or “just a few minutes.” When the child’s name is entered on the roll for that day, you are automatically charged $14. There are no exceptions. Monthly statements showing a delinquent balance of $50 or more will be charged a 3% late fee.
NOTE: After 6:00 p.m., a late charge will be assessed and collected by the person in charge of ASC at the rate of $1.00 per minute, payable upon arrival. If a student is picked up late three times, parents will receive a letter changing the late fee to $5.00 per minute. Parents who continue to be late will be required to move their child to an alternative program.
