After School Program

About the Lower School After School Program

The Lower School offers an After School Program (ASP) to help provide care for children who cannot be picked up at regular dismissal.

ASP operates on all days that the Lower School is in session, except days when the Lower School dismisses at noon, or when there is an unscheduled early closing.

If you wish to have your son attend ASP on a regular basis (2:00 dismissal Fridays*, Weekly Contract, or Daily Contract), please fill out the online contract as soon as it becomes available on June 17 and return it to the Gilman Lower School as soon as possible. Please note: Space is limited, and ASP fills up quickly; please complete your contract promptly.

Online ASP registration for the 2020-21 school year will begin on June 1. Please contact Cheri McElroy if you have questions.

Please note the following policies:

Kangaroo Coach Riders

Any student in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, pre-first, or first grade who rides the 4 p.m. Kangaroo Coach may attend ASP free of charge on the days when he actually rides the 4 p.m. coach. He will be charged at drop-in rates on days when he attends ASP and does not ride the 4 p.m. coach. Coach riders in Grades 2 – 5 will attend Sibling Study Hall (SSH) free of charge.

Early or Late Pick Up

If your son is picked up from ASP earlier than specified in your contract, you will still be charged according to the contracted time period. If your son is picked up later than the time specified in your contract, an additional fee will be assessed.

Non-Contracted Days

If you enter into a Daily Contract, the contract will cover only the days specified in your contract. If your son needs to attend on any non-contracted day, you will be charged the normal drop-in fee, regardless of whether or not he actually attends on all of his contracted days.


If you choose not to enter into an ASP contract, but find that your son needs to “drop-in” on occasion, we urge you to notify both Cheri McElroy and Tammy Testerman as far in advance as possible to ensure adequate staffing.

Regardless of advance notice, the drop-in fee is $15 per hour or any part of an hour during ASP operating hours of 3:15 p.m.-6 p.m. On 2 p.m. Dismissal Fridays, the drop-in fee is $20 per hour. Boys left at the end of carpool will go to ASP and be charged the applicable rate.

Late Fees

Late fees are assessed against the contracted time period at a rate of $15.00 an hour or any part of an hour during ASP operating hours of 3:15 p.m.-6 p.m. After 6 p.m., late fees are strictly applied at a rate of $30.00 per quarter hour.
