    Fees

    Registration Fee:  $25.00 per family.

    Fee Per Period: $191.00 plus $10.00 activity fee for the After School Care (ASC) program.  The fee for each additional child is $181.00 plus the $10.00 activity fee.

    Prompt tuition payment and prompt pick up by 6:00 p.m. is the responsibility of the parent.

    ASC ends at 6:00 p.m. A fee will be assessed for late pick-up.  The late fee for a child picked up between 6:00 – 6:15 p.m. is $15.00 per child.  After 6:15 p.m., the fee is $15.00 for each additional 15 minutes per child.  If your child has not been picked-up by 7:00 p.m., and we have not been able to reach anyone at home, work, or at the emergency numbers, the Broward Sheriff’s Office will be notified. The pick-up time is established by the Broward County School Board and MUST be strictly followed.

    The third late pick-up will result in an administrative review and may be cause for dismissal from the program.

    The period fee is due on or before the date provided on the rate sheet/magnet. School Board Policy requires that a child must be registered and required fees must be paid before he/she can attend the ASC program.  If the payment is not made by the last day to pay, your child is automatically dismissed from the ASC Program, and will have to be re-registered ($25 re-registration fee per family).

    ASC operates only on days when school is in session. There will be NO after care provided on days that students are not in school. This includes teacher workdays and holidays.

    ASC is open from dismissal time at 1:50 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on school days.  On Early Release days, ASC begins at 11:50 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

    Online payment will be active beginning the second pay period.  Please click here to access the website.

     

    Goals

    The goal of our After Care Program is to serve the community by offering a high quality after school child care program of developmentally appropriate activities in a wholesome and safe environment. 

    The program promotes the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development of each child.  We encourage our students to become life-long learners and foster partnerships with parents, students, staff, and the community.

    Our ASC program provides professional care, supervision, recreational and educational activities. This program allows children to experience activities within an environment planned to complement the philosophy and value system of the school and family.  We strive to provide individual attention, security, consistency, and fair treatment for children and working parents.

    The ASC program is staffed by employees of the School Board of Broward County. All staff members have been fingerprinted and cleared to work for the Broward County School system.

    We work together to help each child grow in maturity and self-respect and understanding for others is realized. We also understand that children need fun-filled, as well as educational activities.

     

    Behavior Expectations

    As members of our program, children will be expected to respect the staff, each other, the school facilities and the materials provided.

    In order to maintain a professional atmosphere and to foster proper respect for authority, we ask that the staff members be formally addressed as adults, i.e., Mr., Mrs., and Miss. The informal use of a staff member’s name by a student is inappropriate at any time.

    If a child intentionally destroys or takes something that does not belong to them, the parents of that child will be responsible for replacing the item.

    Children may NOT leave their group without the permission of the counselor in charge. Children leaving their assigned group without permission or not reporting to their assigned group will be reprimanded appropriately.

    Unacceptable behavior will result in disciplinary action, varying from, verbal warnings, time-out, parent conferences, behavior plans, suspension, and expulsion from ASC.  Disciplinary action will be based on the severity of the infraction.  See the Discipline Information Sheet provided at time of registration.

     

    Attendance

    If you know in advance that your child/children will be absent form the ASC program for any extended amount of time, please notify us in writing.

    If your child was marked “present” in the classroom, we expect him/her to attend the ASC program unless advised by you via phone or e-mail.   We take attendance everyday by 2:15 p.m. to ensure that all children arrived in ASC safely.

    Much concern is expressed and valuable time wasted by searching for a child who went home early with a parent or friend. If a child does not arrive in ASC by attendance time, we immediately check with the school office and the classroom teacher to determine if the child was dismissed early from school.

     

    Dismissal

    At 1:50 p.m., the classroom teacher will dismiss the students. Those enrolled in ASC should proceed directly to their assigned meeting area. ASC counselors will escort Kindergarten and first grade students to their meeting area.

    Authorized persons will come to the ASC desk located in the main office, to sign-out students. All persons signing-out students MUST show a picture I.D.

    Please do not pick up your child before 2:20 from ASC.  Between 1:50 and 2:20 the children are getting to ASC, eating snack, staff is taking attendance and accounting for all children, so it is a very important time of movement, accountability, and finally, stabilization.

    Only those listed on the registration form will be permitted to pick-up your child from ASC.

     

    Emergency

    With the safety and well being of the children in mind, it is MOST important that parents complete the emergency form and adhere to the guidelines. Parents are urged to provide us with current telephone numbers and a list of authorized persons in case of emergencies.

    Be sure to keep your contact numbers up-to-date. If we need to reach you, we need valid telephone numbers.

    One of the most important regulations of the ASC program concerns the child leaving the premises. Parents may not take their children home without notifying the ASC office and signing out the child.
