The After School Program provides a safe, friendly, fun, and caring environment.
It is self-supporting.
ASP receives no support from taxpayer funds for its operation.
Daily fees provide funds for the salaries of the ASP employees, supplies, snacks/refreshments, utilities, and indirect operational costs.
Operates on the days that school is in session beginning with the first day of school from 2:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Charges a daily fee of $7 per student that is present at the time attendance is taken.
Charges a late fee of $1 per minute per student after 6:00 p.m. until the time the student is picked up.
Total of (3) late pick-ups will result in the student’s termination from the program.
Payment is due the first day and every day the student attends each week.
A credit will be applied whenever a student does not attend on a day for which payment has already been made.
Payments one day past due will result in termination from the program. This policy will be strictly enforced.
It is suggested payments be made weekly or monthly rather than daily.
Payments should be enclosed in the ASP envelope provided for your convenience.
If you use the program on a drop-in basis, you may send payments in an envelope to the child’s classroom teacher, marked ASP. Payment is due the day your child attends the program.
All payments must be made in the morning before 9:00 a.m.
A statement will be available at the ASP desk at the end of each month. Statements not picked up will be sent home with your child.
A “returned check” because of insufficient funds is considered a late payment.
Two returned checks will result in “cash payment only” for the remainder of the school year.
To pick up your child from the After School Program, go to the back of the school near the cafeteria.
Use the driveway entrance to the Bus Port.
The ASP staff person at the desk will call for your child to meet you there.
Children must be signed out by an authorized person.
Only those persons listed on your registration card will be allowed to pick up your child.
We will strictly adhere to this policy. Should you desire to add or delete names, send in a note to the After School Program or make the changes when you pick up your child.
Please be prepared to show proper identification (photo I.D.) and provide your signature.
Schedule, Snack, & Behavior
Schedule Changes, Emergencies, School Closing
Any time your child varies from his/her pre-determined schedule in ASP, please send in two notes--one to your child’s teacher and one to ASP. This keeps everyone informed of any changes or plans.
This is extremely important for your child’s protection.
Notes involving changes need to be received by the teacher(s) first thing in the morning.
If you pick up your child early from school on a day they are expected to attend ASP, please inform the child’s teacher via the front office concerning the change.
It is the responsibility of the parent and child to make sure that the child knows what to do concerning ASP – the classroom teacher knows only if he/she has received a note from the parent.
If an emergency occurs during school hours and your child’s schedule needs to be changed, please call the school (770-819-2568) by 1:45 p.m. Report this change to the school’s secretary.
The homeroom teacher and ASP need to be notified of the change. Changes by phone are to only be made because of an EMERGENCY.
Do not leave a message on the voice mail. We cannot assure that late messages will be heard before dismissal.
A FAX message by 1:45 p.m.is most helpful (770-819-2570) so we have the message in writing.
Repeated requests to make changes for the same child will be addressed through conversation with the Principal and ASP Director.
Plans for changes need to be made between parent and child before the school day starts. This helps provide security and confidence for the child.
If the school ever closes because of inclement weather or for any other reason, we need to know what you want your child to do.
Make sure this information is in your child’s classroom records. We will automatically send the child home on the bus, unless you indicate otherwise on classroom records.
Remember: When the school is closed, ASP is closed (i.e. holidays, weekends, and teacher work days).
