ASC Fees

Fees must be paid in advance based on payment schedules provided at time of registration. Registration and fees must be paid using the new online payment system FOCUS. (When accessing the FOCUS platform, please use Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.)

FOCUS can be accessed through the Parent Portal under Apps/Services. There is no partial payment for partial use of services. NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO BEGIN A SERVICE PERIOD FOR WHICH PAYMENT HAS NOT BEEN MADE.

A late fee of $5 per 15 minutes per student will be charged for children not picked up on time from the After School Care Program. Consistent late pick up may result in the child being withdrawn from the program. After ten late pickups, the child will be removed from the program. 

A late payment fee of $5 per student will be charged for payments not received prior to the first day of the service period.

Some program costs may be deducted from your federal income taxes and you should save your canceled checks and/or receipts from the program, no copies can be issued.

For information about fees and payment schedule, please call 305-380-1901 and speak with Mrs. Hernandez or Mrs. Bruzzo.

ASC Procedures

Each child must be signed in daily within the school building by an authorized person listed on the child’s registration card.

Children may be picked up any time prior to 6:00 p.m., but they must be picked up NO LATER than 6:00 p.m. If an emergency arises, you are expected to make arrangements so that your child will be picked up before 6:00 p.m. and to notify the program manager accordingly. Parents who are unable to pick up their children on time, on a regular basis, may lose the services of the program.


Each child must be signed out from the after-school care office by an AUTHORIZED PERSON listed on the child’s registration card. Any other person not listed must have permission in writing from the parent or legal guardian and present photo identification before the child will be released.

Authorized Persons
ONLY those persons listed on your child’s registration card are considered authorized.
Even family members, if not listed, are not considered authorized to pick up your child. We encourage you to list several emergency contact persons to be prepared in case you should have any emergency. Verification by the program manager will be made with you before any child is released to a person not listed on the registration card.

Walk Home
A written notification must be kept on file or sent the same day that your child is to walk home. Time of departure from the program must be listed. This must be sent by the child’s parent or guardian. Permission must be obtained directly from the program manager.

Changes in Procedures
If there are any changes in the dismissal procedures for your child, daily or continuous, please notify the office in person or in writing immediately. This will help to ensure the safety of your child. If you pick up your child early from the regular day school program, please contact the after-school care program office.

Should your child become ill or injured during the program, you will be notified immediately and you must make arrangements to pick up your child at that time.

Should your child require medication during the hours that he/she attends the program, a permission form must be filled out and kept on file. Please notify the program manager should that occasion arise.

Your child will be under the supervision of qualified personnel familiar with his/her school. Guidelines and rules for the program are the same as the regular school program and will be explained to your child. Rough conduct, disrespect to leaders, destruction of property or equipment, vandalism, use of profanity, or any other undesirable act will result in disciplinary action and, if necessary, removal from the program. You will be contacted about serious and/or repeated misbehavior. If your child continually misbehaves, he/she may be withdrawn from the program.

A student absent for 5 or more consecutive days from the after-school care program as well as regular school, may receive credit for the amount of paid days absent. At the request of the parent, this amount may be deducted from the amount of the payment for the following service period.

A student withdrawing from the after-school care program after payment has been made may be given a refund for the paid unused days. Parents are responsible for notifying the after-school care manager or secretary in writing as to the date of withdrawal.
