After School Program (ASP) information:
Fees are $8.00 per day per student. A drop-in fee of $12.00 will be charged if a student is scheduled for ASP after 11:00am on the day he/she is to stay in ASP. NEW THIS YEAR: You will need to write how your child is going home (ASP, car rider, bus rider) each day in your child’s agenda (2nd-5th) or transportation calendar (K & 1st). Your child’s homeroom teacher will be the one scheduling your child for ASP each day. It no longer goes through the ASP bookkeeper. Additionally, you do not need to fill out a payment envelope to schedule your child for ASP. Payment envelopes will strictly be used for payments only.
It is important to understand that ASP is a PRE-PAID PROGRAM, meaning that there needs to be a positive balance of $8.00 in your child’s account to stay in ASP. Sending in the money the day of staying in ASP is perfectly fine, as it will be credited in your child’s account that day. Please do not forget that you can pay online. Think of your child’s ASP like a bank account. You need to have money in there from which you can withdraw. You can make large deposits to cover months at a time, weekly deposits, or you can pay by the day if your child only stays periodically.
You can pay by:
- Sending in cash or check in the blue ASP payment envelope. Please remember that this does not schedule your child for ASP. This just makes a deposit to the account. Your child’s homeroom teacher will be the one scheduling your child for ASP.
- Drop off cash or check in the blue ASP payment envelope at the ASP desk when you pick up your child in the evening.
- Pay online at https://osp.osmsinc.com/CherokeeGA/Default.aspx . Please remember that if you pay online, you still need to notify your child’s homeroom teacher of when he/she is staying in ASP via the agenda or transportation calendar.
*****MAKING A PAYMENT DOES NOT SCHEDULE YOUR CHILD FOR ASP. THE ONLY WAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR CHILD FOR ASP IS TO WRITE IT IN THE AGENDA OR TRANSPORTATION CALENDAR. YOUR CHILD’S HOMEROOM TEACHER WILL SCHEDULE YOUR CHILD FOR ASP EACH DAY.****
