Drop-in charges are based upon the amount of time your child is in ASP per day. If your child is in ASP for one hour or less you will be charged $12; If your child is in ASP for more than one hour you will be charged $30.
There is no drop-in charge for children who are in ASP prior to an enrichment class, swim lesson, or private music lesson. Drop-In charges for children in enrichment will start accumulating after a class ends.
(Example: If your child has an enrichment class from 4:00pm-5:00pm there will be no charge for the time prior to the start of this class, only any time after 5:00pm.)
How do I register my child?
Where to register and how to register: Registration for all ASP items will open on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Your child may come to ASP for drop-in based charges on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 29th.
Registration for ASP Plans, Enrichment classes, swim classes, and private music lessons will be completed through our ACTIVE Network Camp and Class Software. During the time of registration you will also be creating an account which will grant you access to: sign your child up for ASP Enrichment, enter basic information about your child, and regularly view your selections throughout the trimester. Click here to log into an existing account. Once your account is active you can register separately for various ASP options.
Changes in billing - For ASP plans, families will be required to submit a card and will be automatically charged at the beginning of each month through your online ASP account. The total amount ($3,200 6pm plan or $2,400 5pm plan) will be divided into nine monthly installments on the 15th of each month starting in September through May 2018. For enrichment classes, all fees will be paid in advance of the trimester at the time of registration.
Kindercare: Daily 2:15-3:00 pm
Kindergarten students are welcomed to the program beginning at 2:00 pm, while waiting for a sibling's dismissal or simply enjoying additional time with kinder classmates. Kinder students receive a snack, participate in enrichment classes or free time and have daily story time/rest. Parents can make arrangements through the Lower School Office to have students exiting the program at 3:20 be walked to Lincoln Avenue for pick-up. Students remaining in ASP past 3:20 must enroll in one of the ASP Plans. Siblings and/or parents may also come to retrieve kindergarten students from the program by properly signing them out with a counselor.
Kindergarten-Fifth Grade: 3:20-6:00 pm
Students will be greeted and checked into ASP by qualified counselors, then led through age-appropriate activities with intermittent supervised play and/or attend ASP Enrichment classes until picked up by a parent no later than 6:00 pm. Students participating in ASP Enrichment Classes must be signed in and out of ASP for safety reasons, but will not be charged for time spent in classes. All students remaining on campus after 3:45 pm will automatically be signed into ASP and be charged accordingly.
Middle School: 3:30-6:00 pm
Middle School students must sign into ASP by 3:45 at the latest. Students may then gather materials for supervised study hall. Students must check into the supervised study hall by 3:45pm. Students will remain in the study hall until 4:45 pm when they will break for snack. After eating, students will join the Lower School ASP and have the choice of outside play or continued homework time. All middle school students in attendance will be expected to be working quietly in study hall and must come prepared. No middle school students may remain on campus unattended after 3:45 pm and will be automatically signed-in to ASP and charged accordingly if not picked up.
An ASP counselor is stationed right inside the gatehouse doors in Lincoln Avenue to receive parents and radio for students. Students will be sent to the gatehouse doors once a parent/guardian or other authorized pick-up presents their ID to the counselor. Parents are always welcome to come down to the Lower School.
We ask that no parents call the program directly in advance to have their students sent to Lincoln Avenue. Please plan accordingly. ASP closes promptly at 6:00pm and students remaining on campus after 6:00pm will be charged $5 for the first minute and $1 per minute thereafter.
ASP provides a daily, nutritious snack at 4:30 pm, which is included in the outlined fees. Snack will not be served any earlier than 4:30pm. All students are welcomed and encouraged to bring an additional snack particularly for students staying longer in the day!
An example of weekly snack menu is below:

Wednesday: Raisin bread with cream cheese
