Registration and Annual Fee
There is an annual non-refundable registration fee of $10 per child. This fee must be paid at the time the parent registers the child. Therefore, your child will be charged the registration fee ($20) plus daily fee ($10) on the first day he/she stays in the program. Total due for first stay is $30. If there are any changes to the information provided at the time of registration, it is the parent’s responsibility to inform ASP on the ASP Registration Form (especially concerning phone numbers and emergency contact).
ASP IS A PREPAID CASH ONLY PROGRAM, THEREFORE PAYMENT IS DUE IN ADVANCE. The attendance cost of the program is $50 per week or $10 per day. This fee ensures that we will be able to operate efficiently, be self-sufficient, and provide the necessary teacher-to-student ratio. The daily tuition pays for all staffing needs, snacks, supplies, and games for the After School Program. Payments can be made using the brown payment envelope provided for payment each week, completing the necessary information. 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. The completed envelope should be placed in the BLACK BOX OUTSIDE THE OFFICE. At this time, we do not accept payments by check.
Your child should have a positive account balance of at least $10 or more on the day you plan to send your child to ASP. As a courtesy, our clerks may contact parents 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 ASP bookkeeper
The ASP will end at 6:00 p.m. SHARP. There will be a late fee for late pick up. The fee will be charged as follows: 6:00 to 6:01 will be a $1 charge and $1 PER MINUTE THEREAFTER. A LATE FEE OF $1 per minute per child will be charged to the parent for every minute after 6 p.m. according to the school clock. Your child will be withdrawn from the program after the third late pick up, per Cobb County School District ASP program rules.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
- The same respectful behavior expected during the regular school day is expected during the ASP hours. ASP personnel will notify a parent if a problem occurs. All Cobb County School District policies in the student handbook apply to ASP. Three county discipline notices will result in suspension or withdrawal from the program.
- 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.
