Princeton Charter School offers an after-school program that runs from 3:15 to 6:00 p.m. on all regular school days, and from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. on parent/teacher conference half days. There is no after-school program on half days preceding the Thanksgiving, winter, spring, and summer breaks. In addition, there will be no after-school program when the school closes early due to inclement weather.
Sign In/Sign Out
Students check in with the after-school coordinator. If a child is not attending on a regularly scheduled day, the school office must be notified before noon. Parents must notify the after-school coordinator of any change in pick-up with written permission; for example, if someone not on the pick-up list is picking up your child. Students may be picked up at any time by a parent or adult designated on the pick-up permission list. Students, in grades 6 – 8, may also sign themselves out after 5:30 p.m. if parents provide written permission.
Students are expected to behave in a manner consistent with the Code of Conduct in the Princeton Charter School Student Handbook. Positive reinforcement is the main form of discipline aside from the guidelines; however, time-outs will be used as needed. Continued disruptive behavior will result in parental notification. While every effort will be made to correct any problems, in extreme cases the Head of School may request that a child be removed from the program.
Schedule (Approximate times)
The following schedule has been designed to allow the students time to relax after the school day, have a healthy snack, and do their homework.
|3:15 – 4:00 p.m.||Social and snack time|
|4:00 – 5:00 p.m.||Homework time|
|5:00 – 6:00 p.m.||Activity and game time|
Parents are billed on a monthly basis.
For the convenience of families with an unexpected emergency circumstance, the program will be available for a reasonable one-day drop-in rate. If you expect to use the emergency service more than once per month, you must enroll in the program.
Change of Plans
Parents must notify the school office by 12:00 noon of any change in plans for that day.
Late charges are assessed every time a parent fails to pick up their child by 6:00 p.m. The late fees are $10.00 for the the first 5 minutes or any portion thereof, and $5.00 for every 5 minutes (or portion thereof) thereafter. These fees are assessed to pay for the staff’s extra time, and to help parents respect the end of the long school day.
When the school closes early due to inclement weather, the after-school program will be cancelled for that day. Every effort should be made to pick up your child at the announced early-closing time.
