Daily Routine

Covid-19 & Safety
The afterschool program will follow CDC guidelines and recommendations:
• Enhanced hygiene (extra cleaning and sanitizing)
• Adequate ventilation in all spaces
What should my child bring to Afterschool?
• Water bottle and afternoon snack [please avoid sugary foods, peanuts and tree nuts]
• Children should wear comfortable fitness-friendly clothes and shoes [preferably sneakers].

• Change of clothes is recommended for students in PreK and Kindergarten.
How does my child transition to Afterschool?
At the end of the school day, PS 3 teachers escort their classes downstairs for dismissal. Children who are
enrolled in our program are dismissed directly to the Afterschool staff. 
VERY IMPORTANT • Please make sure your child’s teacher knows their afterschool schedule. PS 3 teachers cannot dismiss children unless they have express authorization from the family.
What will my child be doing in Afterschool?
• PreK children join our KidzKlub which includes a great mix of creative and recreational activities. During registration these families select Weekday(s) only.
• K-5 families are asked to choose one Specialty class for each Weekday selected during registration. Some specialty classes start at 3pm, others start at 4:15pm depending on spaces available each weekday. In addition to their chosen class, children will have snack time, homework, sports, recreation and outdoor play in the Yard [weather permitting].
