The Beyond the Bell Branch Youth Services section provides an after school safe haven for children at Woodlake. Trained supervisors plan and conduct the program every school day from the time of school dismissal until 6:00pm, for students in grades 2 to 5. First grade students will be allowed on the After School Playground with Principal and Playground Director approval only. This program is provided free-of-charge to participants.
It is our firm belief that every child and youth has a need and a right to participate, in the presence of a responsible, caring adult, in engaging activities that support achievement and promote social, emotional, and physical development beyond the regular school day. This is a permissive program for Woodlake Elementary Community Charter students – children are free to come and go as they please. We ask that children stay in the designated play area on the upper yard until they are picked up or supposed to walk home.
All parents, whose children are using the after school program, must come to the yard to sign in and meet our After School Playground Director within the first 30 days of school.
Students who do not follow playground rules, listen to the coach, stay in appropriate areas, and/or follow After School Playground rules will be warned, suspended, and then excluded from the After School Playground program. Parents will be notified for conferences.
The playground will be closed when school is closed for holidays, professional development days, and weekends. Children must be picked up by 6:00 p.m.
