K-2nd grade students must be picked up at the bus door by an adult. Parents may pick their children up at anytime during the evening by coming by the ASAP office before 5:30. All students must be picked up before 5:30. If a student isn’t picked up on time, warnings will be sent home, and then dropped from the program after the third incident. A free supper will be served daily around 4:10 p.m. All students attending any after school program must enroll in ASAP; this includes students attending the tutoring programs, clubs and extracurricular activities. We will be open on the following holidays, Columbus Day, Election Day, Veterans Day, Martin Luther King Jr. day, & President’s Day if school is in session. Any student with discipline problems will receive a warning for the first offense, be placed on probation for the second offense, and be removed from the program for four weeks if there is a third offense. This will include incidents on the ASAP bus. If you would like your child to attend this program please complete the form in your back to school packet or get one from the ASAP office and return to Lisa Puller.
