Hoboken Charter School After School Enrichment

Dear HCS Families,

We are happy to announce that HCS will continue to offer after school clubs for the 2020-2021 school year.

There will be four payment options for aftercare in order to accommodate our families. The four options are outlined under the tab "After Care Options 2019-2020" and are the same as those that have been in effect since March. Several things to note:

  1. HCS will still provide the movie day option for early dismissal days, unless noted on the school calendar.

  2. This after care program and cost is separate from trimester clubs, which will remain an additional fee. Those offerings will be sent out at the beginning of the school year for the first trimester.

  3. All siblings after the first child will receive a discount as noted on the "After Care Options 2019-2020" tab. Families will be able to apply for sibling discounts even if their children are not using the same after care option. For example, families may have one child in after care daily until 6:00 pm (Option 1) and their other child does a sport outside of school and only needs after care on Mondays and Wednesdays (Option 2). The discount would be applied to the less expensive option.

  4. We understand that after care needs may change based on student club selections and we will allow families to change individual after care days of the week each trimester with club choices. For example, if you choose to do after care until 6:00 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays in the fall because your child is in the play, they could then do after care on Mondays and Tuesday in winter when new clubs are announced. Changes would need to be communicated to Ms. Gigi.

In order to continue to offer after care until 6:00 pm, we need to ensure a certain level of family participation in order to make the program financially sustainable. We are asking families to submit at least their registration forms (under the tab "After Care Enrollment 2019-2020") for Options 1 and 2 for 2019-2020 no later than Friday, June 28, prior to the end of the month. This will help us gauge participation and ensure that we are able to run the program. All payments will be due by September 13.

We are excited to be able to provide extended aftercare hours for our families. Please reach out to Gigi Girgis (ggirgis@hobokencs.net) with any questions.
