After School Program for Middle School Students at the ECC
This new enhanced after school program is a great service offered to family members and is an additional $100 for the entire school year once you are a family member. (Only $10 per month) Once you are signed up your child will receive free access to our middle school dances for the current school year.
The objective of the ASP is to provide a range of supervised programs that will attract the interest of children and their parents. The emphasis will be on program participation. This is not childcare but rather a drop in recreation program. No child will be without supervision.
Participants will be escorted from Helen Keller Middle school by an ECC staff member and participants will not be permitted to leave the building without prior written approval or until they are signed out by a parent or other authorized person. The program will consist of a snack shop, followed by a choice of organized activity and ending with supervised free play either in the gym or the teen center (see attached sample program). Attendance is voluntary depending on your child’s schedule. Only those registered in this program or other ECC program will be permitted to be in the facility during these times.
As this program will only be offered on school days, there will be no program on holidays when school is closed and on snow days. We do offer day trips that teens are able to sign up for most days when school is closed. Whenever possible, the ECC will accommodate early dismissals.
All participants must hold a current family membership, an up to date CT medical health form, a registration form with emergency contact information and $100 program fee. All of these forms can be picked up at our front desk. There will be a two week grace period to get all of this information to us. After this date any child who comes to the After School Program without proper documentation will not be admitted to attend the program and must be picked up from the building.
