ASPire Extended Care Program

2020-2021 FAST ASPire Extended Care Program 

On November 9, 2020 FAST will open ASPire Extended Care for our Face-to-Face students.  Tuition is one flat fee of $342 for all of November and December 2020 and is due in full by Monday, November 16. The registration fee will be waived through the end of the calendar year.  Extended Care is available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday when school is in session, and is open from dismissal to 6:30 p.m.  Extended Care will be held in the Innovation Hall for greater social distancing and a touchless pick up procedure will be in place when you arrive.  All exterior doors remain locked and attended by the director at all times.  We will follow FAST COVID protocols and emergency procedures for the health and safety of students and staff.  Temperatures of staff and students will be taken before entering Extended Care and masks are required to be worn by everyone. If your child is running a fever they will be escorted to the school nurse and you will be called to pick up your child from there.  

What sets us apart from other after-school programs?

ASPire extended care is part of FAST and is staffed with FAST employees. Most of our after-school staff is in their 5th year of employment with FAST (since opening in 2016).  Our teachers are first aid/CPR/AED certified and have access to an AED onsite.  All ASPire teachers are educated and experienced with elementary and middle school students, and have been trained to assist students with SIngapore Math and all other subjects. Older students sign a homework log with their daily assignments, while younger students provide their teachers with their homework folder.  We will continue outdoor play and engage our students in no-contact games and activities.

What is a typical afternoon in ASPire Extended Care?

Students will enter a cleaned and disinfected area in the Innovation Hall.  Students bring their belongings with them and keep their backpacks by their chairs.  They use the restrooms, wash/sanitize their hands, and select snacks and a drink (including peanut free, healthy, organic, kosher snacks, fruit, and a drink).  Following snack time students dispose of trash while teachers disinfect tables and touch areas, and begin homework. Students may use personal devices or an assigned chromebook.  Following homework, students go outdoors for organized activities or free-play.  After returning to the Innovation Hall, students play games (that can be sanitized after use), read, do artwork (with their personal materials), complete additional homework assignments until they are picked up.
