Bridges: After School Program Policies and Procedures
Every student participating in the Bridges: After School Program (ASP) must have a completed registration form on file, including the $20 registration fee.
The After School Program begins at dismissal of the school day and runs until 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday in Jacoba Hall.
At the end of the school day, students enrolled in this program will go to Jacoba Hall and check in with the program staff. After a brief snack time, the students will have a free play period with designated activities that have been planned for their participation. Students then have the opportunity for playground time (weather permitting) and homework assistance in the library. Time is also set aside for special programs. All children remain on the school grounds for the duration of the program.
When picking up children, parents are required to sign-out their child on a daily basis. This is critical for the safety of the students and for accuracy in billing procedures.
Please be mindful of the fact that the program ends at 6:00 PM. If unforeseen circumstances occur and you know that you will be late please call the Bridges cell phone number at 919.610.8104. This way we can assure your child that you will be arriving shortly. Be aware of the extra charges that are in volved. Please see our fee scale regarding this matter.
If school is dismissed or cancelled due to inclement weather, the After School Program is also cancelled for that day. On such occasions, we ask that parents use every means possible to arrive safely at school to pick up their children so that school personnel may also safely make their way home.
We look forward to working with you and your children. At any time after 2:30 PM you may reach the Bridges staff at 919.610.8104.
