FAQ

What is Lanier’s After-School Program?

Lanier’s After-School program consists of a diverse set of club offerings, including recreation, social, life skills and academic enrichment activities.   In addition, staying after to receive academic assistance from your classroom teacher is considered part of the after-school program.  Unlike Elementary SACC programs, students choose specific clubs of interest and attend on those meeting dates.

When are activities offered?

Clubs and activities are offered 5 days a week from 2:30 – 5:30PM.  Late buses are available on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30PM.  Parent Pick-up is required on Tuesdays and Fridays as well as after 4:30 on late bus days (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday).

Please refer to the After-School Calendar (click on the ‘Calendar’ link at the top of this page) for the most up-to-date information on club meetings.

When do clubs and activities begin?

Late bus transportation begins on Monday, September 26th.

A limited number of activities will begin meeting during the week of September 26th.

Other Clubs and activities will begin during the week of October 3rd and new clubs will be added during the school year. Please refer to the After-School Calendar (click on the ‘Calendar’ link at the top of this page) for the most up-to-date information on club meetings.

How do I sign-up for clubs?

Many clubs do not require student sign-up (just attend on scheduled dates!).  Clubs that require sign-up or commitment will distribute a sign-up form at their first meeting.  These forms should be completed by parents and students and submitted to the club sponsor on or before the following meeting.

When can I sign-up for clubs?

Club information (schedules and descriptions) will be added to the Lanier After-School website on an ongoing basis. Sign-up forms for clubs that require commitment or have limited space will also be posted to this website as they become available.  Please refer back to this page often:)

How many clubs can I sign-up for?

Students can attend as many after-school programs as they like as long as they don’t meet at the same time on the same day.  Some clubs meet for a set number of weeks and require student commitment.  Other clubs have a set number of spaces or require a student tryout to participate.

Can I start an After-School Club?

Students can work with Mr. Dejo, the After-School Program Specialist, to begin a club!  Students who are interested in starting a club should complete the Lanier ASP Club Proposal Form

Once this form is completed and is received by Mr. Dejo, it will be reviewed and possible next steps will be discussed.

How much does it cost to participate in After-School Activities?

After-School activities are funded through a grant from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.  The program is free although there may be nominal fees (<$10 )associated with certain clubs that compete or have material costs.  These fees are associated with less than 10% of the activities we offer.
