MAXIMUM NUMBER OF STUDENTS:
Once a club reaches maximum capacity, you will be put on a waiting list. You will be notified in the event an opening occurs.
All fees must be paid through the Homeroom website, unless otherwise indicated. Scholarships are available based on financial need. Please contact Ms. Longacre ([email protected]).
Clubs end at 4:00 PM on regular release days and 3:00 PM on Early Release Mondays.** If your child is enrolled in HOST, they will be escorted to the HOST program. Otherwise, club teachers will dismiss students on the covered courts or through the side door of the teacher parking lot. Please wait for your child at this location outside the building. Please do not go to the main door/front desk to pick up your child. In the event of rain or severe weather, please form a carline in the teacher parking lot, by turning right when you pull into the lot. When you reach the side door, staff will assist your child out of the building to your car.
Note: When you register your child for a club, please document any adults that you authorize to pick up your child. You may put this information in the notes section of your Homeroom profile. Students will only be released to individuals listed in Homeroom, so please take the time to document those individuals.
Each club has a minimum number of students they require to be registered in order to hold that club. If this number is not met, the instructing teacher has the final decision to continue or cancel. Should cancellation occur, we will notify you promptly so that you may choose another club or make other arrangements for your child.
After school clubs are run by the MacFarlane Park PTA. Please support us by becoming a member! You can sign your family up HERE (https://macfarlane.memberhub.store/).
**LATE PICKUP - Please be on time with student pickup. Vendors are unable to stay past student pickup time as they have other obligations following our clubs. The vendor may charge a late fee charge of $10 after the first 10 minutes and $1 per minute after that. If a child has been picked up more than 10 minutes late 3 times within a session, that child will not be allowed to register for clubs the next session.
We look forward to having your child participate in the MacFarlane Park after school enrichment program!
