BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM 2017-18

Welcome back to the 2017-18 After School Program. Melanie Proctor will be the Program Coordinator this year and can be reached from 8:30am to 5:30pm on the ASP phone: (902) 532-8722. Texting is preferred! We are also pleased to announce that we be offering before school care from 7:15-8:05 am. Amanda White, one of our Educational Assistants, will be overseeing the before-school care. Please sign up for before school care the day before you need it.

The program may be used on a drop-in basis, as long as we have a completed registration form before your child attends. Generally same day requests to attend the ASP can be arranged by calling the ASP cell phone before 2pm. If you think you may be using the program at any time this year, please complete the registration form available from the school office, school website (click here) or from Melanie. If you wish to use the program on a regular basis please make arrangements with Melanie so that you do not need to call daily to book your space. If your child is scheduled to come to the ASP please call/text Melanie if they will be absent. You also need to notify your child’s teacher of the days they are attending the After School Program.

Payments for the After School Program will remain the same: 1 child- $7, 2 children- $12 and 3 children- $16. Before School Care will be at a cost of $2 per child. Children registered for the ASP on a particular day will join the program directly from their classroom at dismissal time. Students must be picked up from the ASP by 5:30pm sharp. Regular attendance fees are payable in advance for a biweekly period. Fees for Drop-in attendance are payable when you pick up your child on the day they attend. All fees should be paid to the coordinator and cheques can be made payable to Family Matters.

Activities will be held in the ASP room, the LCS gym and outdoors on the school playground/fields. Please ensure that your child has clothing for outdoor activities as we will spend time outdoors daily if weather permits. All participants should bring a water bottle to use for drinks during the program time. Healthy snacks will be provided.

We welcome your comments and questions. We also welcome and value any donations you may wish to make of craft materials and healthy snacks!

Thank you,

Melanie Proctor

Program Coordinator
