Students must be signed into their GLCPS Googledocs account in order to access this registration form. Programs will be limited to the first 20 students who register. Due to limited slots, we may have to conduct a lottery in order to fairly place students in some programs. A waiting list will be maintained for programs overenrolled.
Programs begin on Monday, September 24, 2019, unless otherwise indicated. Children who are not assigned to an after-school bus must be picked up by 4:30 pm (or designated end time noted) on the Nye Street side of the school. Failure to pick up your child on time may result in he/she being dropped from the program. Please note that attendance is essential – unexcused/excessive absences may also result in the student being dropped from the program. GLCPS will cancel any programs that do not meet the minimum enrollment. Please contact Mr. Ferreira with questions at 508-991-4105 ext. 546 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
