Your child must remain on campus to participate in after school auxiliary programs. If your child is checked out of school for any reason during the day, they must be checked back into their division's office before dismissal in order to participate in After3. For Special Care Days, your child may only be checked in and checked out once per day.

Pick-up from After3 on North Campus is always at the desk located outside of the cafeteria located in the Shaw Early Childhood Center.  Pick-up from After3 on South Campus is always at the desk inside the library in Windland Smith Rice.
