After School Care
ASCEND operates every school day from dismissal until 6 pm. During this time, students are provided with a light snack and given an opportunity to begin their Home Learning Opportunities, as well as structured play time. ASCEND does not operate on any unplanned early-release days, such as weather cancellations or days that the school is closed. After School Care Registration is offered as Weekly Care, for 5 days a week, or Part-Time Care, for 3-days a week. Champions must be enrolled in the After School Care Program via MSB Activities. Once enrolled, care is billed two weeks in advance and paid weekly in MySchoolBucks. Drop-In Care is for as needed care and is billed once children are picked up from the program. There is no sibling discount for Drop-In care. The After School program ends at 6pm; any Champions remaining at that time will incur a $5 late pick-up fee for every 5 minutes past the program end time. This fee will be added to the family’s MySchoolBucks account and families must log into their account to pay the fee balance. To withdraw a student from the program or transfer your enrollment option, please contact email@example.com.
If your student is enrolled in Part-time (3-days a week) or Drop-In care please use this ASCEND Weekly Date Selection Form to communicate the days of the week, or specific date, your child will attend ASCEND for the next week. This form must be submitted by the end of day Friday of the week before the dates you are selecting. Day or week-of registrations are not able to be accommodated.
Wednesday Before School Care
Each Wednesday morning, IC Imagine operates on a late-start schedule with classes beginning at 9:30am.
Wednesday Before School Care allows participating families to drop their Champions off from 7:25am – 8am and provides care until the time when Champions are dismissed to class for the day. Champions are given an opportunity to finish up their Home Learning Opportunities, participate in organized activities and structured play time. Wednesday Before School Care is only available on scheduled Late-Start Wednesdays and does not operate on any unplanned late start days, such as delayed start for inclement weather.
Students attending Wednesday Before School Care must arrive between 7:25am-8am. Late arrivals to the program will not be accepted and students will have to wait with a parent/guardian until the car line opens at 8:55am.
Champions must be registered for Before School Care in advance via MSBActivities; payments will not be accepted in person. There is no registration fee for Before School Care. Families with multiple Champions attending Before School Care are also eligible for a rate discount when enrolling more than one Champion in the program in a single registration. To withdraw a student from the program or transfer your enrollment option, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
