Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  The Leverett Afterschool Program (LASP) is a great place for children in grades K - 6 to come at the end of the school day to play, create, be with friends, and relax and have fun in a supportive and closely supervised environment.  We spend as much time outside as the weather allows. On days that we must be inside we spend time in both the Afterschool room and the gym. Children often build elaborate block or lego creations, have time for art, or play games in the gym. We offer daily Homework time for children to get their homework done with support available for those who need it.   LASP provides a nutritious snack for children each day.  

The program runs from 3:00-5:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Wednesdays there are two sessions to cover the longer afterschool period: 1:00-3:15 and 3:15-5:30.   LASP is not held on regular school holidays or in the event school is canceled due to inclement weather.  The program is run on shorter conference days. Please see the school calendar for specific times these occur each year. 

Fees are based on a monthly tuition depending on the number of sessions per week one is signed up.  The more sessions one signs up for, the lower the average hourly cost. Please see the enclosed registration form for the fee schedule.  Bills are issued once a month with payments due on the first of the month for that months coverage. No refunds are made for days a child does not attend for any reason.

Enrollment in LASP constitutes a commitment and is a privilege.  The LASP Director in conjunction with the School Principal reserves the right to dismiss any child from the program whose continued behavior is disruptive or dangerous.  We have a strict “No Bullying” policy and follow all of the same behavior guidelines as are in place during the school day. We strive to provide a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment for all children.

Thirty day notice is required for any changes in enrollment.  Space is limited and staff is hired depending on the number of children who sign up so please sign up as soon as possible.

Enclosed you will find a registration form and a parent contract which need to be completed and returned by the first day of schoolAny registrations received after this date will be accepted as space becomes available. 

There is a $10 registration fee per family used to offset the cost of supplies.  Please return these forms as soon as possible with the $10 registration fee and the first months payment to:

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me at the school.  I am excited to return for my second year as Afterschool Director. I look forward to working with you and your children.  Take care and hope to see you soon!
