Beyond the Bell: Afterschool Program
Registration available for October starts next Monday 10/5.
Beyond the Bell will now be offered 4 days a week, Monday-Thursday, for CIS (grades 4-6). Parents can also select a 4, 3 or 2 day option. The month of October is now updated to reflect only days in October. Beyond the Bell will NOT be offered on Fridays at this time. Beyond the Bell for Grades 4-6 will be different for this academic school year (2020-2021) in terms of days each week, location, and other COVID19 requirements that can be found in our parent handbook. There will only be one group of 16 children for this program. Please register early to secure your spot!
In our continued efforts to ensure the safety of all participants, we have made every effort to align our safety protocols with the schools. Please note, our programs are offered to all participants on all days regardless of school cohorts. In order to offer Beyond the Bell we have allowed siblings (ages 5-8) of the CIS participants to attend the program – please contact the office you are interested in this program.
Our program will be held 4 days a week! Parents can select the fully loaded option (4 days a week, M-TR), 3 days a week or 2 days a week. If you pick the 3 or 2 day option, there will be a question box asking which days of the week (or dates) you would like to send your child. The time for this program will be 2:45-5:30pm on Monday-Thursday. Fridays is not offered at this time. Beyond the Bell for Grades 4-6 will take place at the Canton Community Center in the Parks and Recreation Room. Staff will meet children outside of the school facilities at dismissal. Please send your child in with a face mask. We will be wearing face masks while indoors and during close quarters activities. Beyond the Bell will NOT be providing snacks this year to children. When you arrive to pick up your child, please park by the 15 minute parking area (close to the flag pole) and use the front entrance door where the Parks and Recreation Office is located. Please stand by a cone on the sidewalk/be mindful to remain 6 feet apart from other parents for the sign in/out process.
Beyond the Bell is the school year equivalent of our tremendously popular Explorers Summer Camp and is run in the same format including indoor and outdoor sports, group games and arts and crafts. Benefits of an afterschool program are widespread. Quality afterschool programs provide a safe, nurturing place with supervision for school age children and the opportunity to reinforce learning from school, teach social skills, and encourage good citizenship. Through the activities that we offer, we hope to help your children develop some life-long leisure skills, as well as an understanding about the importance of having recreational interests.
The program will be offered from 2:45-5:30pm on Monday-Thursday with the exception of school vacations, holidays and snow days. Participants can be picked up any time before the end of the program.
Parents may select one of three packages below!
