Trinity Lutheran's After-school Program
Trinity Lutheran’s After-School Program is a secular program designed to meet the needs of working families with school-age children enrolled at Fort Washington Elementary School (FWES).
The after-school program does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, religion, and disability or ethnic background. Children of all backgrounds and abilities are encouraged to enroll. Enrollment is open to any individual with a disability who, without reasonable programming modifications, is enrolled at FWES. The child must be self-sufficient and able to function in a group setting. We assume children are toilet trained when enrolled; we reserve the right to withdraw a child if there is repeated evidence that a child is not toilet trained. Parents should notify the coordinator of any known medical conditions prior to enrollment.
The After-school program complements rather than duplicates the school day by giving children the opportunity to explore and build on individual interests and skills. Students can relax and unwind, play games, or do homework and socialize with peers and adults. There is no religious content to this program, and we encourage participation and by families of all faiths. A schedule of special activities and themed early dismissal days will be posted on the website.
Because of the pandemic, the program is located in a larger area. Social distancing, the wearing of masks, along with cleaning will be adhered to according to the CDC guidelines. We will be outdoors as much as possible in good weather playing games and utilizing the nearby park. We have extended our hours to accommodate online learning as needed. Transportation to the church will not be provided.
