After School Program (ASP)

The After School Program (ASP) maintained at Green Acres is available from 2:30-6:00 PM for those students who attend Green Acres, Belmont Hills, Fair Oaks, LaBelle, and NortonPark Elementary Schools and are registered in the program. (You may request a registration form from the office.) If school should close early for any reason -- THERE IS NO ASP. Students will be sent home based on Inclement Weather forms completed by parents and on file with homeroom teachers. The program does not operate on teacher work days or holidays. During conference week the hours are extended to 12:30 -6:00 pm. to cover early release time.

Registration Forms and Annual Fee

An annual registration fee of $10 per child is necessary to fund the initial start-up costs each year (such as forms and supplies) and MUST BE PAID at the time the parent registers the child. For the 2019-2020 school year if you have a previous balance, the balance must be paid in full before the child can attend ASP. Any questions please contact Ms. Franqui (678) 842-6905. It is the parent’s responsibility to inform the ASP Program of any changes of the information, e-mail address, particularly phone numbers and emergency contacts, on the ASP Registration Form. Please make sure all contact information is current.

Daily Fee - "Pay Before You Stay"

The After School Program is a PRE-PAID program. The attendance fee is $7 per day/per child. This fee ensures that After School Programs continue to be self-supporting, operate efficiently and provide the required teacher to student ratio. The daily tuition pays for all staffing needs, snacks, supplies, and games for the After School Program. Payments should be enclosed in the gold ASP envelopes clearly labeled with students full name, teacher, and amount. If the payment is for more than one student, please include names of all students and amounts you want deposited to each student’s account. Do not include other school money, such as lunch, PTA or field trips. Change will not be given. All money will be credited to the student’s ASP account.

Outstanding Balances

Your child must have a positive account balance of at least $7 on the day you plan to send your child. As a courtesy, our clerks may contact parent whose balances are running low or delinquent however, it is the parent’s responsibility to know their account balances and make payments in a timely manner. A student will be suspended from the program for non-payment of fees and other after-school childcare arrangements will need to be made.

If you have questions about your account balance, please contact the Director.

Online Payments

ASP online payments may be made through MyPaymentsPlus. If you do not already have an ASP shopping cart, they must register their child(ren) first on MyPaymentsPlus to build an ASP shopping cart. The student's ASP shopping cart information will not be available until after a nightly cycle is complete. Please be sure you do not apply an ASP credit card payment to the “meals” shopping cart because meal payments do not route to the ASP program ASP online payments cannot be made using the MyPaymentsPlus mobile App. Please continue to use this mobile APP for Meal Payments only. Payment confirmations MUST be e-mailed to Ms. McCaskill, Ms. Franqui, and your local school contact.

Returned Checks

If a check is returned unpaid from the bank, the check will be charged back to your student’s account. If the account becomes delinquent, you will have three (3) days from the date notified by the school to bring the account current. Failure to pay within this time may result in the student being removed from ASP. After two (2) returned checks, only CASH or MONEY ORDERS will be accepted for the remainder of the school year.

Late Pick-Ups

A late charge of $1 per minute/per child will be charged if your child is not picked up by 6:00 PM. This is a Cobb County School District Policy and cannot be pardoned. Your child will be withdrawn from the program after the third late pick up, per Cobb County School District ASP program rules.

Behavior Expectations and Dismissal Procedures

  1. The same behavior expectations apply in ASP as during the regular school day. All Cobb County School District policies in the student handbook apply to ASP. Inappropriate behavior may result in your student’s suspension or withdrawal from the program.
  2. To ensure the safety and security of all students in ASP, if an emergency occurs that threatens the welfare of a student, a school official will contact the Cobb County Police Department. Late pick-up from ASP may be considered such an emergency.
  3. For the protection of your student, only people designated on the registration form will be allowed to pick up your student. IDENTIFICATION WILL BE REQUIRED. Each student must be signed out at the ASP desk every day.
