Extended Learning Opportunities through the ABC Community School Partnership with begin for the 2018-2019 school year at a yet to be determined date. 

We are excited to be able to offer a variety of programming at Garfield after school.  Our extended learning opportunities include TBA.  It is important that we share some information that will help you and your student determine the right after school 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.
  • 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.
