  • Why

    On these Fridays, elementary teachers are prepping for student learning. The SHOP is supported by the Elementary Afterschool department and is offered as a district-wide extracurricular activity. It is not being offered on the 12 previously designated Early Release - Peer Professional Learning (PPL) days.

  • Who
    • The SHOP is intended to provide academic enrichment for elementary students between 1:45 p.m. and 3 p.m.
    • Students need to be able to participate in a large group setting, like lunch recess (playground).
    • The SHOP is designed as a safe place for students to go after school and is not childcare. 
    • As with all elementary extra-curricular programs, students will be expected to partake in activities and follow rules associated with the program. 
  • How
    • Buses will operate at 1:45 p.m. and 3 p.m. (some routes may be limited due to the amount of time it takes to complete a route, and/or if special transportation is required).  
    • Registration for The SHOP only needs to be done once for each student.  Please choose the sessions your child will attend during the 2019-2020 school year. 
    • To manage rosters and ensure the accuracy of students who are attending The SHOP each Friday.  The SHOP registration will be closed at noon on the Thursday prior to The SHOP Friday.
