Before/After School Programs

Out of school time Programs 2020-2021

Out-of-School Time programs have been cancelled for the Fall 2020 semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic and site safety protocols.  We will coordinate with the district to offer these programs as soon as face-to-face learning is implemented.

We will be offering program opportunities that arise throughout the semester which can be operated in a virtual-only setting.  Please see below for further details.

Out-Of-School Time Program Information

Expanded and Enriched Learning Opportunities through the Out of School Time Grant will be added as soon as we know the status of that application.

We are excited to be able to offer a variety of programming at Garfield STEM Community School before and after school.  Our expanded learning opportunities include EDAP funded programs listed above.  It is important that we share some information that will help you and your student determine the right Out of School Time (OST) options to fit your family's needs.

  • All programs are voluntary for students.  Many programs are paid for with GRANT money which requires students to sign in so we can track participation.  Students will check in and Activity Leaders will note participation at the beginning of the activity.  Funding may be contingent on students participating in their chosen program 80% of the time.
  • Please note that no one will call home if a student does not come to a program.  There is no mandatory attendance in the out of school time activities.  Attendance is encouraged for all participants in order to get the most out of each program.
  • Clubs do NOT have substitute leaders.  If a leader is absent, the club will be canceled for the day.  An announcement will be made and students can attend an alternate club if one is available or can use the office phone to call home and make arrangements for pick-up.
  • Offerings are driven by participation and If participation falls below expectations, programs may be canceled.  We will give two weeks notice to those in the club or group when this is being considered.  A notice will be posted on the Athletics and After-School Activities page to let families know what is happening.
  • Students can leave at any point in the after-school program and should let the Activity Leader know they are leaving.  Once they leave the campus for any reason, they cannot return to the club that evening.
  • Students are treated as young adult professionals in keeping with our standards as a STEM school.  Our expectation is that they will act accordingly.  
  • Students have 15 minutes to leave the campus when they are done for the day.  If they are NOT in a club, they should be off campus no later than 3:20.  If they are in a program, they should exit the premises no later than 15 minutes after their program lets out.  Students cannot "hang out" on campus.  Students who refuse to sign in to a program will be referred to the counselor and families will be called.  We strive to maintain a safe and fun environment for everyone
  • Participation in each program is recorded separately.  If you wish to find out if your student is attending regularly, you can speak to the Activity Leader of the club or request a report from Pamela Campos, the Community School Coordinator.
