YEAR ROUND PROGRAMS
Frequently Asked Questions and Important Information
What do the different acronyms mean?
YRP: Year Round Programs. This includes Before- and After-School programs and Intersession for all ages.
EDP: Extended Day Program. This is the After-School program for students in grades PK-4.
MSC&A: Middle School Clubs and Activities. This is the After-School program for students in grades 5-8.
What's new for 2015-2016?
E.L. Haynes will continue to run our own out of school time programming (YRP) at the middle and high schools while partnering with a third-party provider at the elementary school (grades PK-4) to administer EDP and Intersession programming. Springboard (www.springboardafterschool.com) is a nationally respected provider of out-of-school-time programming that adopts research-based curriculum and methods designed specifically to build skills outside of the traditional school day.
What are the hours and rates of EDP? How can I enroll?
Download information on Springboard programming for grades PK-4, including schedule and rates: English | Spanish. You must enroll for EDP online at www.springboardafterschool.com.
How do I apply for Child Care Subsidy?
Initial intake for Child Care Subsidy is done by appointment only between the hours of 8:30 AM-4:30 PM at Kansas Avenue. Please contact Ms. Samone Jackson to schedule an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-667-4446 (x2131).
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 during normal school hours during specific breaks and has a separate registration process. There is no early dismissal on Fridays.
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:
