FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How old does a student need to be to enroll in the Elementary After School Program?
Due to The Club's designation as a youth recreation program, students must be at least five years old and enrolled in grades K - 5. The Club is not a licensed childcare facility, therefore we are not able to offer programs or services to infants, toddlers, or preschool students.
How will my student get to The Club for the Elementary After School Program?
Dayton School District provides a bus to transport students to The Club from Dayton Elementary School. Starbuck School District will also bring students to The Club after school upon request. For students in Waitsburg School District, Columbia County Public Transportation (CCPT) has a route from Waitsburg to Dayton after school, and will bring students directly to The Club. There is currently no cost to ride a CCPT bus. You can schedule rides by calling CCPT at (509) 382-1647.
Is attendance mandatory?
No. All of The Club's programs are voluntary, and may be used as often or as little as needed. There is no need to inform us if a student will be absent.
Is The Club a childcare provider?
No. The Club does not provide childcare, nor should our programs be used for that purpose. The Club operates a youth recreation program. As such, students that are overly disruptive and/or aggressive may have their parent/guardian contacted, and in extreme cases, we may send students home for a break. This is not common, though, and we will go to every effort to redirect poor behavior in a more positive direction.
