Important!

*Admin Fee Updates:

The On Site Coordinator role has been brought under the employment of the YMCA. This change was required to address several issues. It will lead to an increase in costs to fund that position. The admin fees have been adjusted to $10.00 per class in order to account for the increase in costs.

*Dispute Resolution:

Parents are reminded that the courses in the After School Program are conducted by private contracted organizations. As such, if the children report concerns about conflicts, missing items, or other difficult or concerning situations the parent’s first contact should be with the program instructor. Homeroom rosters provide a complete and detailed contact list for instructors and organizations. ASP coordinators request that they be cc’d on correspondence related to these types of issues as continual review of these programs is important.

*In the event of emergency please contact Gemma @ 415-846-3535

*Classes may be canceled if there is insufficient enrollment.

*Please pack a healthy snack for your child to eat after-school on the days they attend enrichment classes.

CANCELLATIONS / REFUNDS

Please notify us ASAP if you wish to withdraw from the class. You may receive a full refund up until 48 hours after registration closes. After that time refunds cannot be guaranteed and parents will need to approach the vendor.

 

ABSENCE or EARLY PICK UP

Parent/Guardians MUST notify PROVIDERS directly of student’s absence via Homeroom, phone or email at least two hours before the start of class.  The school is not responsible for sharing this information with after school providers. Classes are held back if parents do not notify providers of absences. Continual unreported absences to provider may result in removal from the program. Provider/Instructor  contacts are in Homeroom!

 

PICK UP

Please sign your children out, providers will have a sign-out sheet. Students will be dismissed by the instructor to the student’s family member or other previously named caregiver at the pick up location indicated in the course description. Parents must provide all names of those authorized to pick up their children to the vendor. Providers may have a fee for late pick up! Please do not congregate in the hall while waiting for class to end as that may be disruptive to the teachers in other classrooms.

 

BEHAVIOR

To ensure a positive after school enrichment, New Traditions has partnered with our providers to reinforce the values and behaviors “Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible.” Inappropriate behavior will be handled in the manner that is consistent with New Traditions’ behavior plan.

Misbehavior will result in the student being given a verbal warning and the provider contacting the parents or guardians. A serious discipline issue (e.g. a threat or actual physical harm to another child or teacher) or consistent disruptive behavior that interferes with others’ enjoyment of the class may result in the immediate loss of the privilege to participate in the program.

 

NOTE: Refunds will not be issued in the event that a child loses the privilege of participating in the program.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

New Traditions’ FONT/PTA firmly believes that all students should have the opportunity to learn and grow through our after school enrichment programs. One spot in each class that reaches minimum enrollment is reserved for a scholarship. Though there is no guarantee of scholarship availability, we will do our best to accommodate your requests.

The following guidelines have been established for awarding scholarships to students:

1. Families are eligible to apply for scholarships if they already qualify for a government program benefiting low-income families such as the school district’s free-and-reduced-price-lunch program, CalWORKs etc.

2. Families may apply for only one scholarship per student, per session. Siblings may receive scholarships for different class(es) during the same session.

3. To request a scholarship fill out the enrollment form AND confirm that you qualify with Ms. Debbie BEFORE the scholarship registration deadline. Please note, due to spaces being held for scholarships the deadline to request may be different from the registration deadline. For any questions about scholarships, please contact Ms. Debbie at (415) 750-8490, main number at New Traditions.
