Is school closed? No need to worry; ASA is here. If it’s a holiday, teacher workday, or a weather-related school closure, ASA offers amazingly fun programs for your children.
To participate in one of these days, students must sign up in advance (except for weather-related closures) at the ASA Parent Connection Table or by filling out and submitting the Registration Form. There is an additional cost for these days (costs may vary, depending on the event/trip; parents will be notified in advance if an additional entrance fee applies).
In addition, please provide your child with a hearty bag lunch.
In the event of a weather-related closure, we will be open as long as we have adequate staff, heat, electricity, and a secure environment. If we are lacking in any of these areas, we will make every reasonable effort to contact you to inform you of a closure. If school closes early due to weather, we will continue to care for your child until you pick them up, as long as we can provide safe transportation from school to our facility.
Students should bring a hearty lunch. They should also wear clothing that can be layered for outdoor and indoor play. Rain gear and boots are recommended, in case of inclement weather.
