    Boys & Girls Club
    Families with children who have turned 6 years have the opportunity to utilize The Boys & Girls Club ("The Club") for their aftercare program. Families are required to register for the Club for the current academic year (fee and Club membership form found here). This program is available for children in grades K-8, with the youngest children being 6 years old. TPS students participate in the Club location across 3rd Street Park, known as their Lincoln Park campus. TPS staff monitor Club kids as safely they walk to the Club each afternoon.

    TPS Aftercare
    TPS provides aftercare for students who have not yet turned 6, and therefore are not eligible to attend The Club. Registration information is shared directly with our Kindergarten families regarding this opportunity, and families must have preregistered by the expressed deadline at the beginning of the academic year. For questions regarding TPS aftercare for 5 year olds, please contact the school office.
     
    During periods of time when the Boys & Girls Club and Girls Inc. do not offer programming, TPS sometimes offers in-house aftercare programming with a limited number of available spaces. This program operates from 3:30 - 5:30p, and is staffed by TPS Instructional Assistants. Information is shared with families regarding when this limited programming is offered; sign up and advanced payment (or the establishment of a payment plan) is required.

    Families in need of free or reduced meal fees must complete and submit an application. Families who believe they may qualify for this benefit are encouraged to apply even if they intend to pack their lunches, as there are additional benefits (such as waiving of school supply fees, and reduced after care fees) that are also granted through this eligibility.

    A Note About Late After-School Pick Up from TPS
    If a child is not picked up within a reasonable amount of time following their designated pick up time (after school, or the close of aftercare if they are staying for aftercare), they will remain in the front office, and the family will be charged the rate that TPS must pay for the staffing expenses associated with this time. If you are going to be late due to emergency, etc., please contact the school office asap via telephone (812.558.0041) to let us know of your situation, and your estimated arrival time.
