We are looking forward to another great school year and to spending time with you and your family. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the center at 327-LIFE (5433) or drop by for a visit.
We strive to provide an experience as close to being at home as possible for our children. This includes a great snack, a time to play outside in our playground or our gymnasium, participate in a game of kick ball, whiffle ball, basketball or football or simply enjoy swinging on the tire swing, sliding down the slides or hanging out at the HANGOUT and swing on one of the four porch swings.
After play time, we provide an opportunity for children to do their homework with the assistance of staff serving as tutors. We have a very caring and talented staff, many are college students who are majoring in the field of education.
AFTER SCHOOL FEES: There is an annual $45 registration fee per child.
The monthly payments are based on 180 school days and divided into 10 equal payments August thru May. The monthly fee is $195 for the first child and $145 for each additional child. To register click on the following button: AFTER SCHOOL REGISTRATION
AFTER SCHOOL CARE AND HOMEWORK: At Lindenwood, we understand how important homework is to you and your child. We provide several homework opportunities Monday thru Thursday (Friday is a less formal homework day).
K-2 has a set homework time each day in their classroom. All children are asked to participate in either assigned homework from their school, a project from our staff (if no homework), or to participate in quiet centers during the homework time.
Older children in grades 3-8 will have homework rooms and resources available from 3:30 pm until 5:00 pm Monday thru Thursday. Each group will have an activity room and a homework room.
We do not force after school children to participate in our homework sessions. There are times when some students do not have homework. Also, some parents want to be involved with their child’s homework assignments and want their child to do their homework at home. We also have 2 different school systems that attend Lindenwood and sometimes they may not assign homework due to TCAPS or other school programs. It is up to the parent to inform their child about what they expect concerning their child’s completion of their homework. In order to encourage your child to complete their homework, we do not open areas such as the arcade center until later in the day.
All of our homework sessions provide adult assistance with homework. Please let us know if your child is unable to do their homework for any reason or if you have any suggestions or concerns. We want your child to be successful during their time at Lindenwood.
RIDING THE BUS Safety is our primary concern. We have highly qualified drivers and school buses that are built like tanks. Each of our drivers have commercial license with a P endorsement (passenger), a child care certification, two state mandated training sessions per year, current first aid and CPR, and over 100 years of experience between them.
After School Bus Rules
1. Leave windows in the upright position. All of our buses have air conditioners
2. Wear their seat belts at all times
3. Keep the noise level down by using indoor voices
4. Stay seated and leave their seat belt on until the driver announces for them to take them off
5. Keep the bus clean, throw away all trash
6. No food or drink allowed on the bus
7. Keep aisle cleared of backpacks, books, musical instruments, etc.
8. Enter and exit in an orderly manner—no pushing or shoving
9. Remove all of their belongings as they exit the bus
10. Provide the bus driver with their first and last name as they enter and exit the bus (Roll Sheet)
Buses departure from the Schools If you know your child will be absent, please call the Life Center number as soon as possible (901) 327-5433. The bus drivers are required to stay at the school 8 minutes after dismissal time. The first few weeks we will have them stay longer due to new students, schedules, and teachers. After this time period, children that do not make it to the bus in time should go back to the office to inform the secretary that they missed the bus. Lindenwood will send the first available bus back to the school for a fee of $20.00 or you may pick them up at the school.
Procedure for picking your child up at the school You may pick up your child at the school. If you have not called the Life Center please inform the driver that your child will not be riding the bus. If your child gets on the bus you are required to sign the bus roll to check your child out. However, if the bus has left the school grounds it will not be allowed to stop to allow your child off until it reaches Lindenwood.
Inclement Weather Policy The Lindenwood buses do not pick up at schools during school closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies.
After School Snacks and Concessions
Lindenwood offers a variety of snacks at no charge for our after school children. Snacks are offered from 2:45pm until 4:00pm. Children are responsible to visit the concessions area after they arrive at Lindenwood. Children will not receive their snack after 4:00pm. A monthly snack menu is available at the front desk and posted on the Parent Bulletin Board. (menu items may be substituted as needed). The concessions stand will be open from 4:30pm to 5:30pm for children who wish to buy additional snacks or dinner. Account cards may be set up and paid in advance for children not using cash. Please see Ms. Toni or Ms. Jean Ann to set up your account.
