ASC is not a homework center but we do our best to complete homework on a daily basis. There are times when we are not able to complete homework and appreciate your understanding with this matter.
We try our best to provide a quiet place and time for students to complete homework; however, parents are asked to check their child’s homework at home. ASC personnel are not responsible for checking to make sure that work is completed or completed correctly. Students are not allowed to return to their classrooms for any items that were forgotten. Please stress responsibility and the importance in packing correctly before leaving their classrooms.
After Care Program was established to provide a safe, inexpensive, after school environment for our students whose parents work; therefore, any student who misbehaves in ASC will be subjected to the same disciplinary actions that would be taken during regular school hours.
Students may bring DVDs from home as long as they are rated G and are labeled with their name.
Students are allowed to bring their own snacks (no candy or nuts of any kinds) but are not allowed to bring their own drinks.
Please notify us of any changes to contact information ASAP.

Unwanted calls not only interrupt your daily activities: Many of them are intended to scam you.
Your best option is a call-blocking application, which can stop scam phone calls before they are answered. Some apps also silence calls from unknown numbers and send suspicious calls straight to voice mail. Some call-blocking apps are free, but it may be worth a few dollars to get one that is highly rated. You can also check to see if your mobile phone carrier has its own call-blocking app.
Another way to stop these calls is to use the Do Not Disturb setting, which can silence all calls from unrecognized numbers between certain hours of the day or send them straight to voice mail.
Finally, remember to blockthe numbers for any robocalls you have accidentally answered.
Additionally, if you've accidentally answered a scam call, you can report the number of the caller and the call-back number to the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov/calls. According to Megan Gordon's article dated August 23, 2019, the FTC used these reports to take action against scammers in Operation Call it Quits in June, during which it filed 94 actions against illegal robocallers.
