BEYOND THE BELL
The Beyond the Bell – Youth Services After-School Program of organized games, enrichment activities, and homework assistance is provided for those students capable of independent supervision to, from, and at the playground site. It is a permissive recreation program available to students in grade 2 through 5. Children may come and go as they choose and by their own volition.

The Beyond the Bell Youth Services After-School Program is not a child care program. Students do not sign-in or out. It is a privilege, not a right, to participate in the program. Children are expected to conduct themselves appropriately and may lose the opportunity to participate if their behavior is disruptive. The elementary program is for students in elementary grades (grades 2 through 5). Students must attend the school where the program is located or live in the residential area.

Parents and guardians are reminded that they must arrange ahead of time for how their child will be reunited with them at the conclusion of the program. Any child not picked-up or allowed to walk home on their own prior to the conclusion of the program will be considered “unattended” and supervising personnel will begin “late child” procedures. If attempts to reunite the child with an authorized adult fail, supervising personnel will contact the Local Law Enforcement Agency for assistance and to take custody of the child. Failure to consistently arrange for appropriate supervision of your child by the conclusion of the program will result in the student losing the privilege of participating in the program. Parents and Guardians are urged to keep emergency cards up to date with alternative contacts authorized to pick-up their child.

The Beyond the Bell Youth Services After-School Program is CLOSED on all non-instructional days (weekends, holidays, pupil free days, etc.). Playground services are only available during scheduled hours.

In order for a student to be approved to participate an agreement form is required (effective July 2010). Please print and fill out the agreement form and turn it in to the Youth Services staff person on duty. Once completed and authorized by the Youth Services staff person on duty, the student may participate.

The persons responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Beyond the Bell Youth Services After- School Program can be reached by calling: Youth Development Program & Youth Services @ YDPsites – (818) 587-4300; Elementary Schools (other than YDP sites).
