Mrs. Kelly and the aftercare staff recognize how important an aftercare program is to our working parents. We feel appropriate behavior by each child will make the aftercare experience more enjoyable for both your child and all children enrolled in the program.
Inappropriate or unacceptable behavior will lead to your child being given a demerit. A demerit indicates that your child will not be allowed to attend aftercare for one session. A second offense will result in a week suspension from the program. A third demerit will result in expulsion from the Aftercare program.
Pick up and Dismissal:
  • Children may be picked up at any time during the program hours by a parent, guardian or other pre-authorized adult. All persons picking up MUST be listed on the aftercare registration form. We ask that emergency contacts listed must reside on Staten Island.
  • Each child must be signed out from the attendance log before being released from the program.
  • Students can be picked up:
    • Grades 1st – 8th – at the cafeteria
    • Kindergarten, Pre K 3 and 4 students at the Pre K building.
Please DO NOT DOUBLE PARK OR BLOCK ANY FIRE EXITS. Fines issued to the school will be the responsibility of the driver.
