Important information about Heard County’s after school program


Home of the Braves

Below are some frequently asked questions about the After School Program at the elementary schools within the Heard County School System:

* What are the days and times of the After School Program (ASP)?

Monday through Friday, 3:00pm (following the 2:45 student dismissal) until 6:00pm. Parents/guardians are expected to be at school for student pick-up by 6:00.

* How much will the after school program cost?

The cost will be $5 per day per student ($25 for a week). There is a one-time registration fee. If you do not pay your weekly payment by the deadline, you will be charged a $5 late fee.  Weekly commitment and tuition is due by 6:00pm on Friday before the week of participation.

* Will I need to register my student(s) for the ASP?

Yes. There will be a registration form (and one time registration fee) that will need to be completed. A Jot Form will be shared on social media and posted on school websites later this summer.

* Will there be someone that we can reach during the ASP hours?

Yes. Each elementary school will have a director on site. He/she will be available to answer the phone if you have questions or have an emergency.

* What will take place for the students during the ASP? 

There will be a variety of activities for your child. Sample schedule of activities: Snack / Bathroom Break / Study/Homework time / Reading time / Indoor/Outdoor Activities / Clean up time

* Can I utilize the program on a “drop-in basis?”

Yes. However, a “pre-completed” registration form will need to be on file with each school. Parents/guardians will need to communicate with the director. Payment will be expected at time of pick up.
