After School Changes - Beginning April 17, 2018

The new After School policy is as follows. Please note that these changes will apply to ALL STUDENTS, including athletes, club members, and magnet students.

  • Students will need to sign-in once they reach their after school destination.
  • After school will have two sessions:
    • Session #1: 2:20 pm-3:10 pm
    • Session #2: 3:15 pm-4:10 pm
  • Students may not leave a session until the end of that session. Thus, students will not be allowed in the cafeteria until 3:10 pm.
  • Teachers will need to write a bus pass for students prior to the students leaving at the end of the session.
  • Students need to have a bus pass in order to ride the activity bus home.

FAQs

For Parents

  1. Why are these changes being made to the after school time?
    • We need to update our after school policies so that students are practicing, rehearsing, or receiving tutoring in a safe and orderly manner.
  2. I need to pick my child up from school before the end of the first session (3:10 pm). What should I do?
    • Can your child complete the work that needs to be done during lunch, before school, or during Flex on Friday, thus eliminating the need to stay after school? If not, then you will need to come into the Main Office and ask the staff to call for your child as you would during a normal school day. You will need to know the room number or teacher with which your child was planning to stay.
  3. I need to pick up my child before the end of the second session (4:10 pm). What should I do?
    • If your child needs picked up after 3:15 pm but before 4:10 pm, then you will need to come into the Main Office and ask the staff to call for your child as you would during a normal school day. You will need to know the room number or teacher with which your child was planning to stay. Otherwise, your child should only stay for the first session. At 3:10 pm, they can report to the cafeteria and will be able to leave once you arrive.

For Students

  1. I drive, but I will need to leave before the end of the first session (3:10 pm). What should I do?
    • You should make arrangements to complete the work that needs to be done during lunch, before school, or during Flex on Friday.
  2. I drive, but I will need to leave before the end of the second session (4:10 pm). What should I do?
    • You should only attend the first session. At 3:10 pm, you will be able to go to the cafeteria or leave campus.
  3. The work I need to complete will only take 10-15 minutes. What do I do once I'm done?
    • You should make arrangements to complete this work during lunch, before school, or during Flex on Friday. If that is not possible, then you will need to plan to stay with that teacher during the whole first session, bringing other work or a book to a read while you wait for the session to end.
