Note: When you register your child for a program, please document any adults that you authorize to pick up your child. You may put this under "Additional Authorized Pickup Contacts" which can be found by clicking on the "Family" icon and editing your child's details. Students will only be released to individuals listed in Homeroom, so please take the time to document those individuals.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF STUDENTS: Once a program reaches maximum capacity, you will be put on a waiting list. You will be notified in the event an opening occurs.
PAYMENT: All fees must be paid through the Homeroom website, unless otherwise indicated. Please contact [email protected] if this presents a problem for you.
PICKUP PROCEDURES: Enrichment Programs 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, enrichment program 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.
ENRICHMENT PROGRAM CANCELLATION: Each program has a minimum number of students they require to be registered in order to hold that program. 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 enrichment program or make other arrangements for your child.
PTA MEMBERSHIP: Enrichment programs are run by the MacFarlane Park PTA. Please support us by becoming a member! You can sign your family up at HERE.
**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 programs the next session.
We look forward to having your child participate in the MacFarlane Park after school enrichment program!
