  • All students who participate are expected to have good behavior and to follow usual classroom rules.
  • No classes on school holidays or early dismissal days.
  • IMPORTANT: Parents MUST wait outside the Kiss and Ride door #6 to pick up their children when class is dismissed. Bus service will not be offered for this program. For their safety, all children will need to be signed out after class by a sibling over 13 or an adult unless they are enrolled in SACC. No one will be permitted to walk home alone. Parents are responsible for picking up their child/children on time.  Enrichment class teachers are from outside businesses and are not able to stay past class dismissal time.  More than two late pickups of 5-10 minutes, or more than one late pickup of greater than 10 minutes, will result in termination from the class with no refund. 

Would you like to help select the classes for Fall 2018?
