FAQs

List of 12 frequently asked questions.

  • Q Where can I find information about your plan to safely re-open the AFTER-SCHOOL/MSAS program?

    You can find the pdf with this information HERE or on the "downloads" tab.

  • Q When can I register for the AFTER-SCHOOL Enrichment classes?

    We plan to open registration for Fall 2020 classes the first week of August.  An email will be sent to all USN families with all class information one week prior to give you time to make your choices. A second email will be sent with the link when registration opens.  

    This year classes will begin in late September. 

    Schedules for each class will be posted here in the "Downloads" section of the AFTER-SCHOOL drop down menu.
  • Q How often can I make changes to my child's AS/MSAS schedule?

    Due to the size of our program, we must ask that you provide us with your child's expected schedule, stick closely to that schedule, and make changes only when necessary. Please give us as much advanced notice as possible when you do require a change.  

    Grades K-4:  You must use the Lower School Dismissal Form for temporary daily/weekly changes, as well as for more permanent changes.
  • Q Do I have to pick up on the hour with the Flex Plan?

    No, you can pick up any time.  Our system will prorate the hourly charge to the minute.  It is crucial that you sign your child out properly on our tablets.  Children who are not signed out will be automatically signed out at 6:00 pm and will be charged until that time.
  • Q How do I pay my bill?

    All AFTER-SCHOOL charges are sent to the Business Office and will appear on your TADS Student Billing account.  Payments should be made through the Business Office.

    The full time 5 Days/Week option will be billed at a set rate based on the installment plan you have chosen for all of your school billing in TADS for the 2019-2020 school year. For example:
    •  Annual - July, $2892.75
    •  Two Installments - July & December, $1446.38
    •  Eleven Installments - July - May, $262.98 each month
    Flex Billing option will be billed monthly as follows: Your child’s time in AS and MSAS will be tallied at the end of each month and sent to the Business Office to be added to your student billing account. Our system will prorate the hourly charge to the minute.  It is crucial that you remember to sign out to avoid being overcharged. This amount is likely to change each month according to your pick-up time each day.

    Contact studentbilling@usn.org to change your TADS billing preferences.
  • Q Can my child come an extra day?

    Absolutely! As long as your child is enrolled in AFTER-SCHOOL/MSAS you may use extra days as you need them. They will be charged at the hourly rate.

    You must use the Lower School Dismissal Form to let us know when your child will be coming for an Extra Day.

    No late dismissal changes will be allowed.  Please submit the form by 1:00 pm the day of the change at the latest.  If you cannot, please make arrangements to have your child picked up at hook-up.


  • Q What time does AFTER-SCHOOL close?

    AFTER-SCHOOL closes at 6:00 pm.
  • Q Can another USN parent pick up my child as part of a regular carpool?

    Yes.  We can set up regular carpools in our sign out system.  We will need a written request from you that includes the name of the parent driving the carpool.  This can easily be an email to bstokes@usn.org or to kmoan@usn.org.

    If it is a one time pick up our staff can handle the sign out for the driving parent as long as we know of the change ahead of time.
  • Q My child is not enrolled in AFTER-SCHOOL, but I've had something come up this afternoon. Can he/she come to AFTER-SCHOOL today?

    If you find yourself in an emergency situation, we will do what we can to help you out. Please keep in mind that due to the size of our program we are only able to accept drop-ins in the event of an emergency. If this is a recurring situation, you may consider enrolling your child on a one day/week basis. This would allow you to take advantage of all that AFTER-SCHOOL has to offer.
  • Q How do I find my child's AFTER-SCHOOL Enrichment class schedule?

    You will find all AFTER-SCHOOL extra class schedules in the "Downloads" section of the drop down menu.
  • Q Does my child need to be enrolled in AFTER-SCHOOL or MSAS to take one of the Enrichment Classes?

    No.  These classes are available to any USN student that is interested! Your child is welcome to come just for classes.  Please keep in mind that they will need to be properly enrolled to take advantage of non-school day care.
  • Q What is your Snow Day Policy?

    In the event that school is closed for winter/inclement weather, AFTER-SCHOOL & MSAS will also be closed.

    We will not open for early care when school opens late.

    We will stay open until 6pm if the school closes early.
