Please indicate “After School Enrichment” and student name on all payments submitted.
Withdrawal and Refunds. Please notify Maury PTA immediately if you are withdrawing your child from a class he or she is enrolled in. Requests for refunds will be determined on a case-by-case basis and will be pro-rated from the date of withdrawal; however, no refunds will be given after the fourth week of classes.

Bus Riders: Children riding the ACPS bus must agree to the Activity Bus waiver on the registration form. Please make sure that the address for drop-off is clear, and kindergarten students must be met at their drop-off location. For the YMCA bus, parents need to request the bus with YMCA staff and indicate YMCA on the registration form.

Absences. Please notify the Enrichment Committee if your child will be absent from his or her after school class. Notification may be sent via e-mail to the Enrichment Committee atMauryPTAPrograms@gmail.com or call the school at 703-706-4440. Notification does not need to be given if your child was absent from school.
Contact Information. Current contact information must be provided for any student enrolled in the After School Enrichment. Maury PTA must be promptly notified of any changes to relevant contact information, as well as, to any temporary or permanent dismissal arrangements.
Student Conduct. Students are expected to adhere to Maury’s code of conduct during After School Enrichment. We look to all parents to support our class providers and volunteers so that all students can enjoy the after school classes. The Enrichment providers are all experienced instructors and will use accepted classroom management techniques; however, if a child is being disruptive during an enrichment class, he or she will be removed from the class and placed with the Enrichment Coordinator who will decide if and when to return the child to the class that day. Parents will be notified of any behavior problems pertaining to their child. If a child has to be removed from a class on a second occasion, that child will be withdrawn from that class for the remainder of the session, and Ms. Jackson will be informed of this decision. No refunds will be given for removals due to student conduct.
Privacy and Data Protection. Personal data provided to Maury PTA as part of Enrichment registration will only be used by Maury PTA to facilitate enrollment. Contact information will be provided to your child’s instructors; however, instructors are contractually restricted to using this information solely for the purpose of providing parents information relevant to participation in enrolled Enrichment classes. Maury administration and teachers and ACPS staff are provided a roster of programs, so students are directed to the proper location at school dismissal and for the coordination of snacks and buses transportation.
Volunteers. Volunteers are essential for after schools program to run smoothly. Please indicate on the registration form if you are available to volunteer to help on a specific day. The primary volunteer responsibility is assisting with dismissal. Volunteers arrive at 3:30 and help escort children from the afterschool classroom to either Campagna or the front door to meet the bus or a parent/caregiver. We ask volunteers to commit for the entire 10-12 week session. In return, dismissal volunteers receive one priority registration in a class of their choice.
Snacks. Snacks will be provided by ACPS unless otherwise noted in the descriptions below. Please note that we are NOT able to check for allergies. If you have allergy concerns, please send a snack for your child from home.
Tutoring. After school tutoring is usually provided by Maury teachers and staff after school on Tuesdays. If your child plans to participate in the tutoring program, please do not sign your child up for a class on the same day as his or her tutoring session, as tutoring and the after school programs are held at the same time.
