The After School Learning Program (ASLP) is committed to creating a safe and engaging space for youth to grow their skills and interests, express creativity and be involved in their community. In addition to academic support, enrichment classes and physical education, our program incorporates intentional community building with a focus on equity and inclusion. We partner with day school administration and staff to provide a continuum of learning that makes After School the best place to be once the bell rings!

Your current acceptance into After-school’s Distance Learning does NOT guarantee a spot for when we go back to in-person:
Families who are registered and received a confirmation of enrollment into After-school’s Distance Learning Program are currently being charged the registration fee and a language class (if this applies to them). This registration fee is for the duration that after-school will be via Distance Learning only. It does not count towards saving a spot for when, and if we go back to in-person programming.
If you don’t intend to have your student participate in After-school’s Distance Learning Program, we ask that you reach out to us to let us know. From there, we can delete your current registration. Please note that registrations of families who have paid the registration fee, but do NOT have their student(s) participate, does not automatically save their enrollment spot for when, and if, we go back to in-person programming. There will be a separate registration process for when, and if, we go back to in-person.
We have heard from many, but not all, families regarding their choice to opt out of after-school. For families whom we have not heard from, we kindly ask that you let us know if you student will be participating in Distance Learning or not. In addition, Ms Helene and I will be reaching out to families with students who have been accepted to After-school, but have not attended this week. We will be reaching out via phone call and emails next week.
We understand that the pandemic has forced families into financial burdens- on top of other stressors. If you find yourself in need of Distance Learning Programming, but find the registration fee to be unfeasible, please let us know. We will never deny a family of After-school programming due to financial hardships. We are always happy to discuss different options.
FRIENDLY FRIDAY SCHEDULE FOR AFTER-SCHOOL
Every Friday, from 3pm-3:45pm, we are allowing all students an opportunity to visit other zoom rooms; regardless of their grade! Our After-school teachers will be offering a Friendly Friday Club activity; these will change every week. From 3:00pm-3:10pm students will have the opportunity to go from zoom session to zoom session to decide which activity they’d like to participate in. After the 10 minutes, they will be expected to participate in that activity for the remainder time of the session. In addition, every Friday after-school will end at 3:45pm.
