After School Specifics

  • There is no fee for the after-school program.
  •  All students are required to sign in to the after-school attendance program at the start of the club session.
  • Discuss your child’s after-school plans every morning to prevent any confusion in the afternoon for the parent and student.
  • Students should make arrangements before the end of the school day to stay after with a specific teacher. This will ensure that the teacher will be available.
  • If you are picking your child up before 4:00 PM, you must come in to the main office to sign him/her out.
  • If you are picking up after 4:00 PM, you can meet him/her at Exit #12.
  • The front driveway must remain open for buses at all times.
  • Encourage your child to get involved in as many activities as possible. After-school is a great time to get extra academic help and/or enrichment, make new friends, complete homework, etc.
  • Every student must return the after-school registration form that is included in this packet. Please make sure that both the student and parent signatures are provided.

Activity Schedule

  • Weekly activity lists can be found on Blackboard under “Thoreau Activities” along with any announcements, updates, or cancellations. The list will also be posted on a bulletin board outside of the cafeteria and on classroom TVs.
