ASP Policies

ASP Policies – OCTOBER 2020

The PA After School Program Team (aka ASP Team) is staffed by a core group of volunteers who are parents at the school. Our primary role is to facilitate registration and enrollment, work with Vendors to create the schedule, and work with families throughout the school year. All of the volunteers are working parents who understand the importance of safe, reliable childcare, and we strive to serve the PS 101Q community as best possible. Remember we are parent volunteers and do our best to address your requests and concerns.

The After School Program is divided into two sessions: Fall and Spring.

Registration and Enrollment: Registration and class enrollment will occur online via the Parent’s Association website: http://pa101.org/asp-portal.
