The Extended School Programs will follow the school calendar.  If school is not in session due to inclement weather the Extended School Programs will also be closed.  This announcement will be made before the start of school on Fast Direct, the School Reach phone system and KSDK-News Channel 5.  On the few days when school dismisses early, the Day Service will operate from school dismissal until regular closing time (3:15 p.m.).

Entrance/Exit for ASP after 3:15p.m. is through the main school entrance by the flag poles.  Please press the door bell and have your school card out to show the camera to gain entrance.  The ASP provides a safe place for students to socialize, play games, do their homework, study for tests, be creative and exercise while parents are at work.  The staff understands how important family time is and helps by working on homework and studying for tests.  If your child needs to concentrate on specific subjects more than others, please inform the staff and we will do our best to help.  If you do not want your child to do any homework please let the ASP staff know. There is a registration fee and weekly fee for the After School Program.  If a parent is in an emergency and needs care after school, the parent must call the school and inform the principal of the situation.  All emergencies are at the discretion of the principal and registration fees may apply.
