 [copied from Ms. Amanda's FAQs page 08/18/2021]

I have a question about before- and after-school programs. I was late to the game, but I did sign up for my child to hopefully be part of any before or after school activities. Any idea when I’ll hear back if he was accepted or not? 

We typically run a waiting list for the first few weeks of PrimeTime. You can contact Ms. Kelly at ktawater@sandi.net to inquire about your position/existence on the waiting list. We have few kindergarteners in PT due to the way the points system works, but it is advantageous to stay on the WL for the program so that extra point counts in 1st grade when space is more likely available. SAY San Diego runs a fee-based program which might be easier to get into, and you can email them at sayextendeddayprograms@saysandiego.org or call 858-565-4148. If you need financial assistance, mention that when you call because there may be financial aid available. -Ms. Amanda, Principal
