Afterschoolprogram

After School Institute — Session II

We are pleased to provide the Thorp Institute After School Program for our students. You will receive email confirmation that your child is registered.

Session II will run from January 7 until March 29 after school from 2:45 – 3:45 — after school students should report to the auditorium, where they will be picked up for Institute.

This year we did not receive our after-school funding grant and will therefore only have clubs with high student interest and a minimum number of students.

Excellent attendance is required (students missing 3 or more may be removed from the program). Unfortunately, NO bus service will be provided. Students may bring a snack from home – we do not provide snacks for them. Please keep in mind we are a PEANUT FREE school.

PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited, notifications will be sent via email if your child has been accepted into the program. This application does NOT guarantee your child is automatically accepted into the program. Students must be picked up promptly at dismissal 3:45 pm, any student remaining who has not been picked up will be placed in the After Care Program and charged the drop in rate. Thank you for your cooperation. 

Any questions, please contact Mr. Vikhter at mdvikhter@cps.edu
