Attendance 
If you know your child will be absent from After-School, please email the After-School Director. We expect activities to fill up quickly, and for there to be a waiting list. If a student is absent from an activity without a note from a parent/guardian, he/she may lose his/her slot. If a student wishes to change his/her schedule or drop any or all after-school activities, a request must be made in writing by a parent/guardian. Students must not simply stop coming to activities.
