September 7th is Back to School

You must have a zero-dollar balance, have paid the yearly registration fee, signed off on out policies, and completed application form before August 30th, 2017 for your child to be registered on the first day of school.  Your child cannot start program on the same day you hand in the application form (No Exceptions!).  There is a one-week (7 day) waiting period before your child is admitted to the program.  This waiting period is essential to ensure the safety of our Afterschool community.

Fall Application will be released end of July. We will email it out to you, but please check out school website for it.

Tuition Increase:

Next year, costs to run the Afterschool program will increase sharply as New York’s minimum wage goes up. This is a good thing — our counselors are worth every penny! To pay for it, we must modestly increase tuition, from $18/day to $20/day.

The PTA After-School Program is open to Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade students from 2:40pm until 6pm every day that school is in session.  Service is available on half days from 12pm-3pm and 3pm-6pm.

The PS261 After School Committee, a group of parent volunteers who oversee the After School program, strives to make sure our program meets the needs of the PS 261 community. If you would like to join the After School Committee, we’d love to have you! Please contact one of the committee chairs above.
