Bronxville After School Club Policies

  1. The registration process requires that each family fill out only one BASC Information/Consent Form for the academic year.  You will be required to acknowledge and agree to a statement of consent online.

  4. BASC maximum enrollment will be strictly observed and is on a first come basis unless otherwise noted.
  5. Please make your selections carefully as there are no refunds once clubs have commenced. Students may only join or move between clubs during the first week of the semester AND with the approval of both the club instructor as well as BASC directors.
  6. After dismissal at 2:50 pm, all students involved in BASC will meet in the middle school/high school cafeteria. In the beginning of each BASC semester, first grade students will be picked up at their classroom and escorted to the cafeteria. for the first two weeks of clubs. Parents are welcome to accompany their children to the cafeteria during the first two weeks of club meetings. Attendance will be taken and a PEANUT AND NUT FREE snack and beverage will be provided. Please do not send your child with an additional snack or money, as they will not be permitted to use the vending machines. At 3:00, club instructors will pick up the children from the cafeteria.

To best accommodate both students and teachers, we have the following discipline policy: If a child is reprimanded or disciplined by a teacher, he or she will have two opportunities to improve his or her behavior. After the third occurrence, the child will be asked to leave the club. No refunds will be made in such situations.
  14. The Bronxville PTA has a limited number of need-based scholarships available for BASC clubs.. Scholarships may be granted for one Homework Club and one general club per child.  If the student is in 1st or 2nd grade a sports club may be substituted for a Homework Club. Parents requesting a scholarship should register for the clubs in order to hold their spot and provide all consent/emergency information. Once registered the parents should contact Matt Fisher (mfisher@bronxvilleschool.org) with your request. As soon as the request is approved a refund for the cost of the clubs will be issued promptly. Information about scholarships awarded will remain strictly confidential.
