After-school Care staff will be ready to help with clipboards for signing out your child. Please make sure that you see a staffer before leaving campus. If you do not, you will be charged for aftercare as a result.

FRIDAYS AFTER-SCHOOL CARE: All students remaining on campus after 1:15 pm on Fridays will be signed into After-School Care, even if a parent or caregiver is present.
