After School Program at Wheatfield Elementary

The After School Program is a structured enrichment program which is available to students in Kindergarten through 5th grade from 3:30 - 6:00 p.m. We are not in session when school is not in session. Students will not be allowed to walk home, even if they live near the school. Parents or their designee must personally pick up their child/children. The individual picking up the child must sign the child out. You must write a note to the teacher when your child will be coming to the program.  Non-refundable fees are:  Children who pay regular lunch fees - $36.00 for a 15 hr. ticket ($2.40/hr). Children who pay reduced lunch fees - $27.00 for a 15 hr. ticket ($1.80/hr). Children who are on free lunch fees - $25.50 for a 15 hr. ticket ($1.70/hr). Purchasing a 15 hr. ticket in advance is recommended for students attending on regular basis. A child must be enrolled to attend the After School Program. If you are late in picking up your child/children, there is an additional $5.00 per 15 minutes for each child. If you cannot pick up your child by the 6:00 p.m. deadline, please make other arrangements for child care. If, for an unforeseen reason, you are going to be late, please be considerate and notify us by calling the school number (219-956-3221) or 219-863-6485, Cookie Kopanda. We encourage students to do their homework. We also provide a snack and use the playground (weather permitting) or gymnasium.
