ASPire Extended Care Program

2020-2021 FAST ASPire Extended Care Program 

On January 11, 2021 FAST will open ASPire Extended Care for our Face-to-Face students  

Tuition is a flat fee of $235 per child for each month January through May 2021, and requires two-week advance notice to disenroll your child from extended care.  Monthly payments are due in advance of services on the first Monday of each month (January 11, February 1, March 1, April 5, and May 3).  Should FAST close school due to COVID-19, you will be refunded the unused portion of extended care tuition for that month.  The $50 annual registration fee is being waived through the end of the school year.   

Extended Care is available from dismissal to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday when school is in session.  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. Students who are picked up after 6:30 p.m. will be assessed a $1 per minute late fee, due at time of pick up.  

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.  Our teachers are first aid/CPR/AED certified and have access to an onsite AED.  All ASPire staff are educated and experienced with elementary and middle school students, and have been trained to assist students with homework, including SIngapore Math.  Older students sign a homework log with their daily assignments, while younger students provide their homework folder to their ASP teacher.  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 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 individually wrapped snacks and drinks (including peanut free, healthy, organic, kosher snacks, fruit, and juices).  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 may play games (that can be sanitized after use), read, do artwork (with their personal materials), complete additional homework assignments, etc. until they are picked up.
