ASE Logistics for 2021-22

Post

Sacramento Country Day School is excited to have ASE back on campus this year. Please know that we are working hard to get your students back on campus for ASE and run our program as safely as possible. For the 2021-22 school year, ASE will be modified for COVID-19.

For full program details, please log-in to CavNET and read the ASE Brochure on the Back-to-School Packet Resources Board.

Hours of Operation

Campus opens at 8 a.m. If your K-8 student needs ASE early-bird care between 7:45-8 a.m, please contact me to sign up your child. The early bird rate is $5/morning for your student. Students are not permitted on campus before 7:45 a.m.

The ASE Program is open 2:45 – 5 p.m. After 5 p.m., a late fee will be charged. The late pick-up penalty is $12 for the first minute and $1 for each additional minute. Habitual late pick-up (five times) will be cause for a child’s dismissal from the ASE Program.

Drop-ins are discouraged at this time. However, if your child attends camp without prior registration, you will be billed $20 per hour. K-5 students on campus after 3:15, and 6-8 students on campus after 3:45 p.m. who are not participating in a supervised activity (such as a club or sport) will be checked in to camp and charged the drop in rate.

ASE will be closed during all school holidays/closures. Please refer to the Holiday Calendar in CavNET. ASE will not be offered to families on teacher work days or parent conference days.

Middle School

Start Time: 3:35 p.m.

Middle school students must check in to the ASE Program by 3:45 p.m. unless they are participating in an after-school activity such as sports, theater, band/orchestra rehearsals, or other school-related supervised activities such as clubs.

An older high school sibling may not supervise students. ASE Camp is available from 3:30-5 p.m. If a student remains on campus after an organized activity (sports practice, drama rehearsal, etc.), the teacher or coach in charge is required to sign the student in to camp.

Campers signed in this way will be charged the drop-in rate, unless pre-arranged with the Director.

Middle School Cars Siblings

Free until 3:25 p.m.

If you have a lower school student waiting for a middle or high school sibling, they are able to wait in Camp at no charge until 3:25 p.m., at which time a teacher or counselor will escort them to MS cars by the Main Office. There is no need for parents to sign-out their children when using this service.

ASE Private Music Lessons

ASE private music lessons offer one-on-one teaching sessions from distinguished musicians and teachers. All phases of playing are developed pedagogically.

Proper posture and breathing, embouchure and tone development, musical notation, time and key signatures, intervals, and scales are all covered in private lessons.

First priority on schedules is given to returning students, then private lessons are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you need to cancel a private music lesson, please notify the Director 24 hours in advance to waive the lesson fee.

Lessons are 1/2 an hour long once a week for a $40 fee.

Payment Plans

ASE registration will be available on August 20. This year, there are two payment options for your family. Registration instructions are available to enrolled families by logging in to CavNET and reviewing our ASE Brochure.

Plan 1

Plan 1 requires families to register in advance pay for a full four-week session of ASE, billed from your child’s dismissal time until 4:45 for PK and 5 p.m. for K-8th The average hourly rate for this plan is $10.25/hour.

Based on dismissal times, families will pay:

  • $420/four weeks for PK-2nd grade
  • $350/four weeks for 3rd-5th grade
  • $280/four weeks for 6th-8th grade

ASE will be prorated for non school days. Refunds will not be issued for un-used hours. It is best to select this plan if you know you will consistently pick up at 4:45 for PK or 5 p.m. for K-8th.

Plan 2

Plan 2 requires families to register in advance and pay for a minimum of five hours a week for a four-week session to reserve their child’s spot in the program. The minimum cost is $240 for the four-week session and any additional time over five hours a week will be charged an hourly rate of $12/hour.

Total billing will be based on usage. Hourly charges will be billed in half hour increments. It is best to select this plan if your child’s pick up time will vary from day-to-day.
