SAS is excited to be the provider of extracurricular programs for Sarah Smith Elementary!
All SAS Extras classes take place at the Primary campus; Intermediate students are bussed to Primary campus by APS bus at school day dismissal on the afternoons they have a class for the first hour of extras programming. Students at the Intermediate campus having a class during the second hour of programming must either transition from a first hour extracurricular (if enrolled), from SAS after care (if enrolled) OR be brought back for the second hour class by a parent or caregiver when class begins.
SAS Extras offers a variety of extracurricular options for your child each afternoon. SAS extracurricular programs also known as "SAS Extras" are offered to all currently enrolled Sarah Smith Elementary, Primary and Main students in grades K-5; some classes are banded by grade. Students can enroll in just extracurricular classes or they can participate even if they are enrolled in the SAS aftercare program. Students at the Intermediate campus will be bussed to the Primary campus at the end of the school day. All extracurricular classes and dismissal take place at the Primary campus which is also the location for the SAS aftercare program.
Again, students transition to us at the end of the school day for all first hour extracurricular programs. If any child attends at 2nd hour extracurricular program, they must either be brought back to the school at the start of that class by a parent or caregiver, transition from a 1st hour extracurricular program, if enrolled, or transition from the SAS aftercare program, if enrolled. No student may be left on campus in the time after school has dismissed until the second hour extracurricular program begins. This is an APS and SAS aftercare policy.
