This e-mail is for those who currently utilize our after-school care program. Please be advised that we will be offering after-school care though the end of this semester (December 18), but beginning in January we will no longer be offering that program.
Last year, this program was viable and routinely had many of our students staying after. This year, it has not been uncommon for us to have one or two children staying after school for a very short period of time or, on several occasions, none at all. Additionally, from a financial perspective, it is actually costing the school money as the cost to staff the program is well above what the program actually brings in. Furthermore, it has become difficult to staff the program, which was not a concern last year.
To give our families plenty of time to make alternate arrangements, we will continue to offer after-school care through the end of our current semester, which ends on December 18. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
Thank you for your support of our school and for entrusting your student to our care.
Just a man trying to save his thoughts and correspondence
