We would like to welcome you and your child to our Clover Garden Before and After School program! We are offering you the opportunity for your family to receive enjoyable childcare in a safe environment. The program will consist of a variety of recreational activities, snack time, field trips and scheduled homework time.
Please take the time to read this, as it encompasses the information needed for you and your child to understand our programs’ policies. To give you a better understanding of our program, we have listed below a number of important points for you to keep in mind. We appreciate you as a part of the Clover Garden family and for allowing us to care for your child.
The purpose of Clover Garden’s Before and After School program is to provide a safe, enjoyable, and well-supervised environment for Clover Garden students. This program will be offered to all of our students in Kindergarten through 12thgrade. All children are welcome without any discrimination; however if a child cannot function safely as outlined by our school rules, he or she may not be allowed to continue in our program.
The program is located throughout the school building. Things will center in the gymnasium, cafeteria, classrooms and outdoor playground area. Parents, always use the front door entrance to pick up your student. Please come in and sign your student out.
BEFORE SCHOOL PROGRAM INFORMATION:
Clover Garden School will offer a Before School Program each morning. This program provides quality supervision in a social atmosphere. Students participating in the program can use the time for homework help, reading, drawing, computer work, etc. Students that are dropped off prior to 7:30am for Middle School and for Elementary School will need to go to the Before School Program. Before school will begin at 6a.m. and ends each morning at 7:30 a.m. Students will be dismissed to the gym or cafeteria at 7:30 a.m.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM INFORMATION:
Clover Garden School will offer an after school program for students at Clover Garden School. The program is staffed by Clover Garden School teachers and serves Clover Garden School students only. The daily schedule for the after-school program will include: Exercise/Physical time (outdoors), Homework/Academic time, and Cultural enrichment time. There is a time for students to eat a snack during the Homework/Academic time. The program is offered 5 days a week from school dismissal at 3:00PM until 6:00 PM on all school days. The program will follow the school closings for inclement weather. Students who are involved in an extracurricular club may report to the after-school program after the club, but there will be no fee adjustment for those students. Students enrolled in the After School program will incur an additional charge of $10.00 for Early Release Days. Students not enrolled in the After School program will be charged $20.00 for each Early Release Day. Students picked up after 6:00pm will incur Late Pick-Up Fee of $1.00 per minute after 6:00 p.m. These late pick-up fees will be added to the monthly bill. Excessive instances of late pick-up may result in termination of program participation.
