FAQs about After School

Where does my child go at the end of the school day if he/she is in Afterschool?

Your student will be led to the classroom where after school class is taking place that day. The students will have a snack in class before the program starts. 


Where are after school classes located?

Most afterschool classes will be held in classrooms at GSB on the 5th and 3rd floors. Students will play soccer in the park or the ballroom on the 3rd floor in the winter.  


What happens if my child’s specialty class instructor is absent?

If a specialty teacher is absent, we will inform the families as soon as we know about the absence. Every effort will be made to provide a substitute teacher. If this is not possible, the students will be supervised by GSB staff and have open play/choice time. Student may be picked up early or take the bus home if preferred. 


Will we receive a refund if our child misses a class, or if the specialty class instructor is absent?

We do not offer refunds for classes missed due to teacher or student illness or other factors out of GSB’s control.  


We missed the registration deadline. Can we still register?

We recommend registering as soon as possible, as classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and many fill quickly. However, for classes with openings, we will continue to accept registrations until the end of September.


Can we adjust our registration if our needs change, or if our child changes his/her mind about a class?

Changes to your class schedule will be considered until the end of September only if there are vacant spots in the other class. There will be no refunds for canceled classes after October 15th. Please see the detailed description of our policy as you complete the online registration process.
