ASCA FAQs

  1. Where do I pick up my child after class? Parents/caregivers should pick up their children at the classroom where the class is being held.
  2. I don’t know which classroom they are in… There is an ASCA bulletin board outside of the main office. That has a listing of where all classes are being held along with a list of all the classes and the kids in the classes.
  3. What if I am stuck in traffic and will be late picking up my child? Please try your best to avoid being late, however we understand that sometimes it will happen. If this is the case please email asca@memorialspauldingpto.org. Please remember our parents are all volunteers.
  4. Why am I charged a late fee if I pick up my child late? We understand sometimes you are caught in a situation that will make you late. After the first 10 minutes, you will be charged $10, then $1 for each additional minute. Please remember our volunteers are parents and we must respect that they have homes and families to care for.
  5. My child is in kindergarten, how will they know how to get to their class? In the Fall semester when all the kindergartners are new our volunteers will collect all the kindergartners and show them where their ASCA classes are held. After a couple of weeks kids will walk upstairs on their own, normally with another child taking the same class. Our volunteers are always there and looking out for kids who are “lost”.
  6. How do I know if my child got there ok? Our volunteers take attendance at the start of class. They are usually done 15 mins or so into the hour. Any children absent we check to see if they were absent from school. If they were not marked as absent from school a call will go home to let you know your child is not at ASCA.
  7. Do I need to email ASCA if my child will not be in school? YES!!! Please email us at asca@memorialspauldingpto.org if your child will not be in school the day they normally have ASCA.
  8. How can I change or cancel the class my child is registered for? We do not allow cancelations. Please be sure of the classes you would like your child(ren) to take before registration. If you have special circumstances, please email asca1@memorialspauldingpto.org to discuss.
  9. My child attends extended day. How will they know how to get there after their ASCA class is over? If your child is new or does not know how to get to extended day, they can wait with the teacher and a volunteer will walk them over once dismissal procedures are complete.
  10. When do children eat lunch during the Tuesday ASCA session? Tuesday ASCA classes at 12:30pm include 15 minutes for lunch before class begins, so please pack a lunch! They will eat in their ASCA classrooms.
