Latchkey

Latchkey provides a safe, fun-filled, and relaxing environment for any student who needs supervision before and/or after school.  Latchkey is held in the School Cafeteria.

Morning Latchkey begins at 7:15 a.m. Students are asked to read a book, complete homework, play cards, or draw.  Students are to be dropped off in the parking area at the plaza doors.  This is a quiet time and no physical activity will take place.

Afternoon Latchkey begins at 3:30 p.m.  Students are to report immediately after school to the cafeteria and check-in with the Supervisor.  After check-in is snack time, play time (outside, weather permitting), and study time.  Students who are at Latchkey past 4:30 p.m. can get extra snacks at the Snack Shop, for an additional fee.  The money collected from Snack Shop will be used to buy new toys, puzzles, games, and additional snacks for Latchkey. Parents or other authorized pick-up person must come to the cafeteria to pick up their child, no later than 5:30 p.m. Students must check out with the supervisor before they leave.  

Rules and policies regarding discipline will be the same as in the school handbook.  All behavior problems will be dealt with by the supervisor and discussed with the parent at pick-up time.  All students, at all times, are expected to abide by the STA Honor Code.  A student may be removed from Latchkey if disruptive behavior is a persistent problem.

There is no Latchkey on holidays and on days school is not in session.  Afternoon Latchkey is closed on early dismissal days.
