-STUDENTS WITH A PURPOSE-

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Lincoln County Family Connection (LCFC) after school program serves K-8th graders and their families. The goals of the After School Program are to increase math and reading achievement and provide services to families. Students benefit from individual homework and tutoring, creative math and reading instructions, and engaging enrichment activities. With a teacher student ratio of 1:10, students can thrive from instruction tailored to their needs and learning styles. . .  

       For children to achieve success in such a program, it must supplement and yet be different from typical daytime instruction. After School Program teachers present students with engaging and hands-on instruction. In order to qualify for the program, a student must have an academic deficiency in a core subject or a low CRCT score. A referral application must be submitted by their teacher and approved by the school principal or counselor prior to acceptance into the program

      LFC is fortunate to have strong partners who are concerned with student achievement and family services. Many community organizations volunteer their time and resources to provide our students with exciting and educational activities

          Together, through this community learning center, we can offer superior services to the children and families of Lincoln County. 

 GENERAL INFORMATION

The After School Program meets Monday through Thursday, from 3:25-6:25 p.m. The program will start in September and run through the middle of April. The After School Program follows the same calendar as the regular school day. Holidays and Inclement weather days will be followed in the After School Program.

COST OF PROGRAM

There is no charge for a LCES or LCMS Middle School student to attend the after school program. All snacks, food, and materials are furnished for each studentenrolled in the program. 

EARLY PICKUP

If you need to pick your child up early, a parent or guardian must come to the After School office and sign a student out. Students are not allowed to check themselves out; neither can anyone else check a student out without a note written by the parent and brought to the After School office by the child. Persons signing the student out may be asked for identification, and MUST be 18 years of age or older. Consistent sign-outs will result in withdraw from the program.

 AFTERNOON TRANSPORTATION

The Lincoln County School System provides bus transportation home for the students of the After School Program. Drivers will take the students as close to their homes as possible. However, there are some roads that the buses cannot travel. In this case, the student will be dropped off at the nearest intersection. Drivers will make every attempt to get the child home by 7:15, but this time is only an estimate Students will only be permitted to ride the bus if they attended the After School program that day. Students attending other school events, and not in attendance in the After School program will be prohibited from riding the bus home. Students are not permitted to walk home unless they have a note from their parents

 DAILY PROGRAM  SCHEDULE

The students begin the program each day with a snack provided by the school, and a homework session. Students are expected to bring homework assignments with them for completion. Bringing homework assignments is the responsibility of the student, but the teachers will help when possible. Students will have both a math session and a reading sessioneach day. They will also have a daily enrichment period.

TARDINESS

Students will be considered tardy to the After School program if they arrive after 3:25. The only excused tardy will be if a student is meeting with a teacher for tutoring. The student must bring a signed note bythe teacher to the After School program, indicating the time they were released. Any Consistent tardiness will result in withdraw from the program. Some other school activities may beexcused. Please check with the After School Director for clarification 

REQUIREMENT OF THE PROGRAM

There are a few basic requirements for students attending the After School Program. Regular attendance is required (see attendance policy), and all paperwork must be completed by the parent or guardian before the child starts. Students requiring constant disciplinary action will be withdrawn.

To help after school students to be successful in their learning process, we are in contact with parents. In addition, some After school teachers keep in daily contact with students’ teachers’ in the Lincoln County school system. Occasionally, other parent-oriented sessions will be held.
