After School Care
Aftercare is a service we offer to our students to protect them and keep them out of the elements after dismissal at 3:20 pm. Aftercare is a paid expense of $60.00 a month and allows your students to stay on campus, and be supervised until 5:30 pm daily. Any student who remains on campus past dismissal will be directed to aftercare to wait on their rides. Any student who accumulates an aftercare stay of more than twice a week, or more than six times in a month, will be charged $60.00 for the month. Any students staying after school for clubs, tutoring, or any other extracurricular activity must be picked up immediately upon club dismissal. Students left on campus once activities are dismissed will be sent to aftercare and charged. To sign your student(s) up for aftercare, please see the front office.
- Students need to be in clubs, aftercare or picked up by 3:30 PM.
- All students need to leave the campus area after 3:30 PM.
- Any students who are not picked up by 3:30 PM after dismissal or after their clubs end time will be asked to go to aftercare. Students go to aftercare 2 or more times in a week or 6 or more times in a month will be charged a monthly fee.
- After 5:30 PM, there will be no supervision by LISA Academy staff, and students will not be allowed to stay in the building. LISA Academy is not responsible for students that are not picked up after the students are dismissed from After Care.
- The set monthly fee is $60 for the first child. Any additional children will be $20 less than the original amount (example child 1-$60, child 2-$40, child 3-$40). The first payment is due upon registration.
Jeans Day & Spirit Day

Spirit Shirt Friday’s will take place for the entire 2019-2020 school year. Any student whose parent filled out all check-in forms will receive a free jeans day pass.
