PTA Afterschool

Dear Families,

We hope you and your children are enjoying their afterschool experience.  It has come to our attention that there have been many late pickups from the afterschool program and as such it has become necessary to implement a late pickup fine.  We know that different classes end at different times but that was very clearly stated  in all communications and you are responsible for being there on time to collect your child.

EFFECTIVE MONDAY, OCT 28th, if you are late to pickup your child from their class dismissal time, late charges will be as follows:

•         $1/minute for the first offense

•         $2/minute for the 2nd offense

•         $5/minute for the 3rd time

The site director will be responsible for collecting the money and determining lateness and late fees.  If fees are not paid, and/or if lateness is determined to be chronic or repetitive, then your child may be removed from the afterschool program.

Please note, for those classes that end at 4 or 4:30, we do offer extended care until 5pm for a small additional fee.  If you feel it would be useful for you to have the extra “cushion” of time, please contact us and we will be happy to enroll your child in extended care.

This email was sent to the 1 email address provided upon registering your child.  It is your responsibility to notify any others who may be picking up your child.
