General Program Policies
The middle campus after school program begins at 4:00 p.m. each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and 2:30 p.m. each Wednesday each day school is in session. Please note that the program closes promptly at 6:15 p.m. and a late fee of $1.00 per minute will be charged starting at 6:16 pm. The official clock is the clock at the front desk. Late pick-up fees will be charged to your account. After three incidents of late pick-up, the fees increase to $3.00 per minute. Excessive late pick-ups may result in a student not being allowed to attend the after school program.
The staff to child ratio is 1:18. Students must be able to function appropriately in a 1:18 counselor: child ratio. Repeated discipline problems may result in a student not being allowed to participate in the after school program. ANCS provides an area for students to place their belongings. We strongly recommend that children do not bring any toys, electronic equipment, games, unless specifically requested for an activity. Children may not attend after school program if they are ill. Arrangements must be made for immediate pick-up if you are called. Please keep staff informed of any changes in information and update on any significant changes at home that might affect your child. If medication needs to be distributed during the after school program, please contact the after school program coordinator so arrangements can be made.
The cost of the after school program at the middle campus is $50.00 /week or $10.00/day. Each additional child is $5.00 a day with the option of paying for 90 days or more with a discounted rate of $8/day and $4/day for any additional children. Checks, cash and money orders may be used for payment for the after school program. Payment for the weekly after school program is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. Payments are due on the Friday prior to the week of attendance. Balances in excess of two weeks’ tuition may result in a student not being allowed to attend the after school program. Arrangements for payment and/or reduced fees may be made with the after school program coordinator should circumstances arise. However, these arrangements must be made prior to the two week deadline. If an emergency arises and a child needs to participate in the after school program for a day, the parent / legal guardian needs to notify the after school coordinator of that situation. Payment for the day is due the day of participation. If a check is returned for insufficient funds the parent / guardian will be notified immediately and a replacement of an alternative form of payment is to be made within two days. Reoccurring payment difficulties may result in a student not being allowed to attend the after school program.
