Afterschool Program (ASP)

JANUARY 2020 

 

Dear Parents,

 

Spring 2020 enrollment will begin on Monday January 27, 2020 at 9 PM. A preview of the tentative Spring After School Program that is subject to change is now available here. Please login to the Parent Portal to confirm all your information is correct, as well as your credit card on file is correct. 

 

Your credit card will be charged on Monday February 10, 2020. Enrollment after 2/2 will be subject to a late fee and late start date

 

Please note the following information only applies to the Parents’ Association volunteer-run After School Program (ASP) on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. PA Volunteers run the ASP in conjunction with school faculty, staff, and outside vendors. 

 

 

 

Enrollment: Open enrollment is from January 27 – February 2, 2020.
Spring 2020 Semester: The Spring 2020 PA After School Program starts
on Wednesday, 2/26/20 and ends on Thursday, 6/25/20.

 

 

 

 

Open Enrollment is held on a first-come, first served basis. You are strongly encouraged to enroll early for several reasons:

  • To ensure an enriching and positive experience for all students, we may cap the overall capacity of the After School Program. 
  • It is also very likely that some classes (especially our most popular ones) will reach capacity and may close to additional enrollment. 
 

All enrollment for the PA-run After School Program will be carried out through JackRabbit, our enrollment platform. For details on how to register and enroll in classes, please visit the Registration and Enrollment guide. Please be sure to read the manual thoroughly and make sure you have an accessible JackRabbit account before enrollment.  As always, a lot of our information is available in our Frequently Asked Questions document. 

Please note: Dismissal from all onsite After School programs will take place at the new main entrance on Juno Street.


The security desk is staffed by Teachers and PS 144 staff, who will be able to assist you with any additional questions you may have at pickup.  We ask that you carry photo identification, especially for the first few days and if new parents/babysitters will be picking up your child.


Please inform your child which days they will be attending After School, as well as which classes they will be taking.  While the school administration does not rely on your child for this information, we have found that this decreases anxiety for the younger children and helps ease the transition to After School.



We look forward to a new and exciting program.

Sincerely,

Elisa Cheng and Sonia Duchatellier, Co-Vice Presidents, After School Program

On Wednesdays to Fridays, if you are running late, have an issue with dismissal, or anything else that involves the staff at the front desk during the After School Program hours, you must call the ASP phone at 646-256-3538. The administrator for that day will have the phone with them during ASP hours.  This phone number is also available in WhatsApp.

*On Mondays and Tuesdays, the After School Program is offered by the Common Point Queens and is held at P.S. 144. Common Point Queens will handle all classes, registration, payment, and administration for those two days.
