CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES
In order for a student to stay for a club meeting or activity, the student must have a note by a parent stating which club the student will be staying for after school. A student must have a note each day he/she plans to attend.
All clubs begin at approximately 3:15 pm and end at 4:30 pm. Students are to report directly to the meeting room when they are dismissed and remain with the club sponsor at all times.
Students will be dismissed at 4:30 pm and may either ride the activity bus home or be picked up by a parent. Students who are not picked up at the appropriate time will not be allowed to participate in after-school activities for the remainder of the semester.
For safety reasons, students who remain after school must be supervised at all times. Students who are found out of their designated area without supervision or who fail to follow the rules of the club sponsor will lose the right to participate in any after school activity for the remainder of the semester.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Stamm at 591-4900.
