After School Program

Students can play, run off energy, read quietly in the Library, grab a snack, hang with friends, or start on homework before and after school at Emerson. It’s available daily and students can simply drop in—no need to pre-register or pre-pay.

Your child’s well-being is paramount to our caring and dedicated staff. The After School Program is fully licensed by the State of Michigan Department of Human Services and follows all of its rules and guidelines.

MORNING CHILD CARE: DAILY, 7:30-8:15AM

Lower School
Children in the Morning Child Care program have the option of reading, drawing, coloring, doing homework, hanging out with friends, or playing games in the library.  A movie will be shown on Friday mornings.  Morning Child Care meets in the Library and is supervised by three adults a day, including Emerson teachers Barb Grabbe, Sigrid Bower and Lenny Dale, as well as after school staff members on a rotating basis.  All students in the building prior to 8:15am must sign in to Morning Child Care and will be billed at the rate of $6/day.

Middle School
Morning Child Care is not offered for Middle School students.  The building opens at 7:30am and if Middle School students enter at that time, they are welcome to stay in the main Middle School hallway prepping for class to begin at 8:00am.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM: DAILY, 2:45-6PM

After school dismisses, students who are staying after school sign into our program in the library or MS Room 219.  We provide a snack each day and outside play time.  All students must be signed out by an adult with a PIN when they are picked up.

Lower School
Children in the After School Program sign in on the steps of the library and then head outside for a snack each day.  The library serves as the main meeting place for all grades and on a daily basis includes: games, crafts, activities, as well as ample opportunity for creative and self-directed play. Students also spend time outdoors each day, right after signing in.  A supervised, quiet space for homework and studying is available daily and students have the opportunity to spend up to 30 minutes in a supervised computer lab.

Middle School
Middle School students report to Middle School Room 219 to sign-in to the After School Program.  Good homework habits are encouraged during the After School Program and a supervised homework room is available right next door in MS Room 217.  Students in the after school program will have supervised free time that they may use for quiet activities inside or recreational activities on the playground.  Middle School students have the added privilege of using their devices after school as long as it remains school-appropriate.  At 3:00pm, students who are not picked up curbside must check in to the After School Program.  If students stay after for a practice or activity and are not picked up promptly at the end, they must sign in to the After School Program and will be charged for the time spent.  Middle School parents are permitted to park on the curb nearest the MS end of the building, in sight of the after school program classroom and staff members and text our staff to send their child outside at 734-386-0277.
