Welcome to Fall 2014 at After3!

Hello Parents:
Welcome to the Fall/ Winter Semester of the After3 program at NEST+m ! This upcoming semester is sure to be fun and rewarding for your child. While providing your child with quality and enriching programming, please know that their safety and well-being are of great importance.

Daily Schedule
K-2nd grade will be picked up directly from their classrooms. 3rd grade and up should report directly to the cafeteria for snack time. Please remember to pack extra snacks, as we do not provide snacks. You can visit our Daily Schedule for more detail information. Please note that After3 is a nut free program.

Medical History and Pick Up Authorization Form
Forms must be filled out and returned on the first day that your child attends the program, even if your child has attend after school previously. Forms can be brought to the PTA office Monday – Friday from 7:30am-2pm, backpacked or scanned and emailed. You can access the forms at Policies & Forms or pick up a printed version in the PTA office.

Please provide After3 with a copy of your child’s medical that was issued to the school or you can access a new medical at Policies & Forms or pick up a printed version in the PTA office.

I would greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during this first week of dismissal. Parents will be let into the building at 4:45pm via the Columbia St. entrance. Please sit in the front part of the cafeteria, which is the parent designated waiting area, until your child comes down with their teacher.

Most classes, unless otherwise stated, are dismissed at 4:45pm, and if you are not there by 5:00pm, the program’s staff will look after your child until you arrive. Please note that 5:45pm is the latest pick up time, so please be prompt to avoid a late charge. Students signed up for homework club will be brought to the cafeteria by 5:30pm.

If you need to pick your child up during instruction time, please email requests at least 10 minutes before requested time. All early pick up  needs to be completed before 4:30pm. After 4:30pm the after school staff is completely dedicated to preparing for dismissal of the whole after school.

Building and Bathroom Policy
After 3pm, the main floor is not accessible to parents unless there is a special event scheduled. The ground floor does not have adult restrooms; restrooms are for school aged students only. I would recommend using the restroom before you arrive or at the public library on Columbia and Houston.
