  • Program Details:

    Behavior Expectations:
    The after school program is a voluntary program and unacceptable behavior will result in dismissal from the program. The After School Program Coordinator reserves the right to dismiss students from the After School Program for the day as the result of unacceptable behavior. This will result in the loss of their transportation privilege and therefore may need to be picked up from the After School Program by a parent/guardian.  Parents will be notified by phone or mail if a discipline referral occurs. Students who are dismissed on three different dates will be dismissed for the remainder of the current session.  Students may enroll in the following session, assuming that the behaviors have been corrected.

    Attendance Expectations:

    • Students are expected to attend ALL DAYS of programming.
    • Students who have more than three unexcused absences can be removed from programs.  Written notes are due to the after school coordinator upon return to the program for excused absences.  Excused absences include any school related overnight field trips.
