After School Care

Welcome to the After School Program

Family well-being can be assisted when parents know their children are well cared for. The After School Program is designed to meet this need with a conveniently located, well-staffed site. The program strives to provide both indoor and outdoor recreational activities for your child.

Children will be allowed time to work on homework at parents' request, but the programs are not designed to be a tutorial service.

***Registration for 2020-2021
Due to COVID restrictions, we are limiting our numbers to 20 for each day (20 students for M/W; 20 students for T/Th). These spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Act quickly! If you register ($25 fee), it is expected that your child regularly attends. It is imperative that we keep the contact between students consistent. Thank you in advance for working with us in this matter.

The After School Program begins on the first full student attendance day in August. The program will not operate on scheduled holidays, early dismissals due to inclement weather, or teacher work-days. However, the program will operate on the four scheduled Early Release Days.

  • State regulations require that students be signed in each day by parent or guardian for before school program.
  • All students must be signed out by a parent or guardian upon departure.
  • We may release a child only to parents or to individuals authorized on the emergency form.
  • We must release students to either parent unless a court order limiting custody is on file with the site director. If your custody situation changes, we will need to have written notification.

The After School Program is not a regular program of the Transylvania County Schools and is not supported by school funds; however, it is directed by the Elementary Grades Curriculum Office. If at any time you have questions or problems, please feel free to contact that office at 884-6173.

The After School Program is licensed by the North Carolina Department of Human Resources, Division of Child Development. The program opens with the dismissal of school and closes at 6:00 P.M. Activities include supervised play and organized, small group activities. A nutritious meal is served each day provided by Transylvania County School Department of Child Nutrition.

The program does not operate on days when students are not in school. If schools close prior to serving lunch, the program does not operate.

Parents must complete enrollment forms plus health and emergency information before a child can be served.
