Before Care/After Care
West's Before-School Care Program is a school-sponsored offering available to 75 scholars on a first-come, first-served basis. The fee is $50 per month (single student) or $75 per month for families with siblings. However, we do offer a limited number of spots free of charge, as a courtesy to our families. Complete our online registration form >>
Arrival for Before-School Care begins at 8 AM. If your child is not on our roster, then we are not able to accept your scholar at school before 8:30 AM. Safety always comes first, and we must maintain a safe and reasonable adult-to-student ratio. Enrolled scholars must adhere to schoolwide expectations and the behavior policy; any scholar not adhering to our behavior expectations will be uninvited from the program, and other accommodations will need to be secured.
Through the DCPS Out of School Time Program, West offers After-School Care from 3:30 PM to 6 PM on school days, unless notified otherwise. Enrollment is limited, and space fills up quickly. Parents/Guardians first must submit their school-year enrollment forms for students before enrolling in After-School Care. (Please allow two business days for our school registrar to complete your child’s paperwork.) Register for After-School Care here >>
Your child’s student ID is helpful in accessing the online system; West’s school registrar can tell you your child’s student ID if you do not know it. You also can look up your child’s record using his/her name, date of birth and school name. For the 2017-2018 school year, co-payment fees will be billed through 10 monthly invoices (September 2017 through June 2018) of $82.50 for a total annual co-payment of $825 per student.
For assistance, contact Mr. Pinkard, our school registrar.
