After School

Blue School’s After School Program is offered to students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.  It consists of two elements: Clubhouse and enrichment classes.  Clubhouse is an open environment where children of mixed ages share a snack and activities together. Activities may include outdoor play on the terrace, art projects, board games, and homework help.

Enrichment classes cover a wide range of choices, such as active sports, creative arts, technology, and science. These classes are offered on a first come, first served basis and some require a minimum number of enrolled students in order to run.  Each semester is 16 weeks and changes/refunds are available for the first two weeks. Enrichment classes end at 4:45pm unless otherwise noted. Clubhouse/Extended Day is offered until 5:30pm every day.  

In our continuous effort to ensure that After School is engaging, fun, and productive, we welcome input from parents, teachers and children. Please contact the After School Coordinator for all After School related questions.  

 

AFTER SCHOOL FAQs

How do I enroll my child in After School?

Enrollment forms are emailed to families and available for download from the school website each semester. Completed forms can be dropped off at the front desk or emailed to the After School Coordinator. After School payment can be made by credit card or check. Once your enrollment form and payment have been received, you will receive a confirmation receipt via email.  

When does After School begin and end?

After School begins each day at 3:20pm when children are dismissed from their classes. From 3:20-3:45pm, all children participating in after school gather in the Commons for a snack. Enrichment classes are held from 3:45-4:45pm. Children enrolled in enrichment classes may also join Clubhouse after their classes from 4:45-5:30pm for an additional fee. Students participating in Clubhouse remain in the Commons from 3:45-5:30pm.

Can I drop off my child to Clubhouse without enrolling them in After School?

Yes, this is referred to as a “drop-in.” You must notify the receptionist (reception@blueschool.org), your student’s teachers and the After School Coordinator (afterschool@blueschool.org) via email by 3:00 pm that day. Drop-ins incur a $40 fee. You may also purchase a 10-day pass from the After School Coordinator. This pass expires at the end of the school year.

How much does After School cost?

After School fees will be listed on the enrollment form and will vary by class. Enrichment classes are offered on a per semester basis for fees ranging from $480 to $650. Extended Day until 5:30pm is offered for an additional cost.

Discounted rates are available for families receiving tuition assistance. Please contact our staff accountant, Domenica Ruggieri (domenicar@blueschool.org) directly for more information.
