Kingfisher Academy’s added values:
BEFORE / AFTER SCHOOL CARE
School opens at 7:30 but the academic day doesn’t start until 8:40. Kids can be dropped off from 730 on for no additional charge.
Aftercare is provided for a low weekly fee. If a student isn’t riding the bus or picked up by 4:00 they are in aftercare. Aftercare ends at 5:45 Monday through Thursday and 5pm on Fridays. The fee is $30/week for one child and $40/week for two children.
Each afternoon anyone can ride the bus that lives within 5 to 7 miles of the school or can be delivered to various after school programs close by.
The bus usually leaves around 3:15 (to avoid the high school traffic) and generally everyone is delivered by 4:30. If your child is under 9, someone must be home to greet the child when getting off the bus, for safety. The cost is $30/month.
With the help of the kids, new things have been established! Our first book of the year is going to be “Time Cat” by Lloyd Alexander. Emerson has vouched for this book, so we believe it’s going to be great. Also, the Build-A-Thon will be Tuesday of every week instead of Wednesday like last year.
