Latchkey Program: “After the Bell”


The “After the Bell” Latchkey program is staffed by Bethany teachers who are committed to providing continuity to each student’s educational experience by supporting the daily structure and expectations of Bethany School.  It is offered to students in kindergarten through eighth grade.


Teachers provide daily homework assistance, outside play time (weather permitting); quiet time; and activities suitable to each age level.  Each child is provided a healthy snack and drink.  Games, crafts, puzzles, movies, and more are accessible on a daily basis.


Morning latchkey begins at 7:00 am and continues until 7:30 am.  Students dropped off after 7:30 are not charged.  They are supervised from 7:30 am until 7:55 am when the bell rings to begin classes.


The Latchkey school extension is 115 and teachers may be reached on the Latchkey cell phone between 3:00 and 6:00 PM only at 617-3723.
