GENERAL INFORMATION:

SPRING SESSION: April 24 - May 26, 2017

MBX is utilizing a new registration system. Each family will be required to create an account.

Enrollment process: When enrolling online, you will receive a receipt. This is NOT a confirmation of final enrollment in the class chosen. Confirmation is dependent on sufficient enrollment and a class may be canceled or adjusted. Confirmation lists and procedure info will be emailed to parents prior to the beginning of the session. If you have questions regarding a specific class, you may contact Sharon Mualem.

Session fees: $110 - 5 week session; $88 - 4 week session. Note: selected classes have different fees. Please refer to website.

No Classes:

EDP: If your child attends EDP, his/her after school enrichment schedule will be carefully coordinated with the EDP staff to ensure that students are escorted by the PASE staff to/from EDP as required.

Supervision: Parents are not expected to return to school after dismissal if there is time between dismissal and the enrichment class, with the exception of a TK or AM Kinder enrolled in a 3:00 (or a Wednesday 1:50) class. There is no supervision for this eventuality. All other students are supervised at all times within the Snacktivity period and any other early block of time until class begins.

Kinder Morning classes: Specific information will be available online along with class confirmation before the start date of the session for kindergarten students enrolled in the 10:15 or 11:30 morning classes, offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Students enrolled in the 10:15-11:05 classes will be supervised for snack/lunch (brought from home) and then escorted to their 11:30 kinder class by PASE staff. Students enrolled in the 11:30-12:20 class will be met and escorted from their kinder class to their PASE class by PASE staff. Parents are not expected to return to school. This session classes will be held in EDP Room 59. Drop off and pick up will be there.

Reporting to Afternoon classes: Our Snacktivity location is the tables outside of the Cafeteria. PM Kinders will be picked up from their classroom and escorted to the Snacktivity location by PASE staff throughout the session. Students grades 1-5 will report to the tables outside of the Cafeteria immediately following classroom dismissal. FIRST WEEK ONLY: FIRST GRADERS (early and late birds) will be picked up at their classrooms and escorted to the Snacktivity location by PASE staff. Beginning week two, these students will walk to the tables outside of the Cafeteria on their own.

Procedures for Non Pacific Students: MBUSD students from other schools should report to the Snacktivity location (the tables outside of the Cafeteria) for check in. Parents may drive through The Zone at 14th Street and John or park on the street for drop off and pick up.

Pick up for Afternoon classes: Pick up is at the Cafeteria tables/Zone. There is no dismissal from the class location. Students who are meeting parents at the Zone carpool line must notify PASE staff before leaving the school grounds. If your child has permission to walk or bike home alone, this must be indicated on the registration forms. These students also must check out with PASE staff. Do not leave your car unattended in the Zone. If you are picking up at the snack area, please park on the street outside of the Zone.

Rainy day schedule for Afternoon classes: We will meet in the Cafeteria after school on all rainy days when and if it is available. We will use the Art Room if the Cafeteria is not available. PASE staff will be at the outside lunch tables immediately following classroom dismissal to direct students to an indoor location. Our regular procedures of reporting for PASE activities for PM Kinders and Grades 1-5 remain the same during rainy days. Outdoor classes will have indoor instruction during rainy days.
