Full-Time Monthly Fee: Families whose students are enrolled full-time in the Before School and/or After School programs will be billed at the weekly rates (Before School $30/week; After School $75/week).
Drop-In Enrollment: Families whose students are enrolled as â€śdrop-inâ€ť must purchase drop-in booklets in advance from the reception desk. Each booklet contains five drop-in tickets. Drop-in tickets must be turned in each day a student participates (Before School $40/booklet; After School $90/booklet).
Full-Time Subsidy: E.L. Haynes is now a licensed D.C. Child Care Provider. Families who successfully enroll in the Child Care Subsidy program through the Department of Human Resources will not be billed for Before or After School programs. Those families who want to enroll in the Child Care Subsidy Program, but do not qualify, may apply for in-house financial assistance through Allen Kramer.

How do I apply for Child Care Subsidy?

What is the teacher to student ratio for EDP?
Under 6 years (1:12); 6 years and older (1:15).
Does it cost anything for Middle School Students to attend MSC&A?
No. E.L. Haynes raises private funds to provide clubs and activities for middle school students.
Is the Athletic Program (sports teams) part of YRP?
No. The E.L. Haynes Athletic Program is coordinated by Athletic Director Brent Bass for students in grades 5-8. There is no cost for students who are selected to pay on competitive teams. For the fall season, teams meet directly after school and end at 6:30 PM.
What is Intersession?
Intersession is an optional program. During the breaks between quarters, Haynes offers week-long Intersession expeditions that are closely linked to classroom curriculum and instruction. Taught by E.L. Haynes teachers, EDP staff, and local experts, small groups of students embark on week-long investigations involving classroom, community, and museum-based work. Intersession runs from 8:30 AM to 3:45 PM (KA) and 8:30 AM to 4:15 PM (GA) during specific breaks and has a separate registration process. There is no early dismissal on Fridays.
What are the dates of Intersession?
There are seven weeks of Intersession during the 2014-2015 school year: October 14-17; October 20-24; April 20-24; June 22-26; June 29-July 2; July 6-10; and July 13-17.
Where can I receive Intersession packets and register?
Intersession packets are distributed to all students in their classrooms. Copies of the packets will be at the front desk during the registration period and are accessible online. There will be a table set up in the lobby of both Georgia and Kansas campuses to register. Please return your packets to the appropriate campus. Do not give packets to classroom teachers. Students are placed in classes on a first-come, first-served basis as packets are received.
Does Child Care Subsidy cover Intersession as well?
No. Intersession fees are based on your childâ€™s lunch status and are separate from Before- and After-School program fees.
Do I have to register yearly for Year Round Programs and submit medical and dental forms?
Yes to both. Just as families must register for school every year, the same applies for Year Round Programs. Students enrolled in EDP must have a yearly physical and dental exam and must be on file in the EDP office.
Where can I find more information about Year Round Programs?
Each campus has a bulletin board that is specific to YPR on the main floor. To speak with key staff:
