Youth Services After School Program

The Beyond the Bell – Youth Services After-School Program

 

The Beyond the Bell – Youth Services After-School Program of organized games, enrichment activities,

nutrition, physical fitness and homework time is provided for those students capable of independent supervision to, from, and at the playground site. The Beyond the Bell Youth Services After-School Program is not a child care program. It is a permissive program. Students sign-in and leave the program by their own volition. Children are expected to conduct themselves appropriately and may lose the opportunity to participate if their behavior is disruptive. The elementary program is for students in elementary grades (grades 2 through 5/6) and the middle school program is for students in middle school grades (grades 6 through 8).

 

Parents and guardians are reminded that they must arrange ahead of time for how their child will be reunited with them at the conclusion of the program. Any child not picked-up or allowed to walk home on their own prior to the conclusion of the program will be considered “unattended” and supervising personnel will begin “late child” procedures. If attempts to reunite the child with an authorized adult fail, supervising personnel will contact the Local Law Enforcement Agency for assistance and to take custody of the child. Failure to consistently arrange for appropriate supervision of your child by the conclusion of the program will result in the student losing the privilege of participating in the program.

For emergency purposes, parents/guardians are required to complete and maintain all phone numbers and contact information.

 

The Beyond the Bell Youth Services After-School Program is CLOSED on all non-instructional days

(weekends, holidays, pupil free days, etc.). Playground services are only available during scheduled hours.

 

The Youth Services After School Program operates on school days from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m.  Parents and guardians must arrange ahead of time for how their child will be reunited with them at the conclusion of the program.  Any child not picked-up or allowed to walk home on their own prior to the conclusion of the program is considered “unattended” and supervising personnel will begin “late child” procedures.  If attempts to reunite the child with an authorized adult fail, supervising personnel will contact the Local Law Enforcement Agency for assistance and to take custody of the child.  Failure to consistently arrange for appropriate supervision of your child by the conclusion of the program will result in the student losing the privilege of participating in the program.

 

In order for a student to be approved to participate, the Before and After-School Program Application/ Agreement must be completed. Once completed and authorized by the Youth Services staff person on duty, the student may participate.
