Responses to Frequently Asked Questions
1. WHERE WILL THE 5 STAR ENRICHMENT CLASSES BE TAUGHT?
All of our Enrichment Classes will be taught on the WISH Charter/Orville Wright STEAM Magnet Middle School Campus. Students will be transferred to our Staff at a designated location after School is over (either in the K/TK Dismissal area or for 1st-5th, by the Wall with large La Ballona mural outside of the Kindergarten Rooms KB and KC).
2. HOW WILL MY KINDERGARTEN/TK CHILD KNOW WHERE TO GO FOR CLASSES AFTER SCHOOL IS OVER.
Either the Students K/TK Teacher will be picked up on our Enrichment Classroom or we will bring them to us at the La Ballona Mural after School is over. If they are in WLA Extended, then we will walk them there and have their Staff sign them out from us. They will stay with our Instructors during the entire class. We won't even allow them to walk to the bathrooms alone. Either our Instructor, his/her Assistant or our Coordinator will walk him/her there.
3. WHAT IS THE PROCECURE FOR SIGN-IN AND SIGN-OUT
Students will be "checked in" when they arrive; and we will do our best to find them if they don't. Our Procedure is that if we cannot account for them (e.g., if they didn't come to school due to sickness, etc.), then we will search for them for about 15-20 minutes; and then call his/her Parent to problem solve this.
PLEASE sign him/her out on our Sign-in/Sign-out Roster before leaving School (this is required, so please don't leave the campus with your Child before signing him/her out on our Sign-in/Sign-out Roster).
K/TK Parents/Guardians: Please pick up your Child up at the Class location our they may be near the wall with La Ballona Mural if their Class was on the Playground) after our Enrichment Classes are over.
1st-5th Grade Parents: Please pick up your Child at the Classroom/Playground or by the La Ballona Mural after Classes are over. They may be walked to the main WISH Charter gate if Parents are running late. Students will be required to stay inside the fence until you arrive.
We will walk WLA Extended Care Students back to their room after our Enrichment Classes are over.
