AFAC has started!

Venue updates
-Recreational Soccer needed to move to the Covered Court due to limited ES field space while RIFA soccer is running. This will be a better venue to develop their skills. 
-We will move Yoga at the Aikido Area, 2nd level starting September 1st.
-We will move Chinese Beginners to Room 2004, 2nd level at the Grade 4 hallway starting September 3rd.

Important reminders
-Once a student has signed up, confirmed and is attending an activity, THEY MUST ATTEND EVERY SESSION. If the student is not able to attend a particular session due to another commitment, the AFAC office must be notified. You may call us at 840-8485 or email us at
-If you wish to cancel a confirmed activity, please email us right away to give a spot to a student who's on the waitlist and/or to avoid charges on the student account for activities with fees.​
-If your child has other activities like ATAC, or tutorials outside school, etc., and you need to request arrangement of days the students will be absent from the confirmed activities, please email AFAC office.​
-In case your child has dismissal changes (carpool, will ride the bus instead of being picked up), please email the ES office so we can notify the coach.
-Grade 1 will always be picked up by the assigned coaches at the pillars outside the Grade 1 classrooms.
-Grade 2-4 students  can make their own way to activities starting next week

Once regular classes are over
-Students may only proceed to the following areas: School Bus or Ride waiting areas, Elementary Canteen, After School Activity Site or library.
-Students going to the library (CMC) must get a PASS from the duty person (campus supervisor) in the ES Canteen beforehand.
-If a student misses the bus or their ride has not arrived by 2:30pm, they will be sent to the ES canteen to be collected. They may proceed to the ES Office if they need to make a call. 
-It is important for the safety of all students that are not in an activity, that they proceed home directly. Students are reminded to that the ES Playground is off limits as soon as the first set of buses leaves. All students should not be wandering around campus without purpose or place to go unsupervised or hanging around the arrival/departure waiting areas.

All students MUST take their scheduled bus. No activity extension will be allowed.  

Bad weather/Cancellation of classes
If a decision is made to close the school after students have arrived, and before school ends, students will stay until 2:00 pm.  After School activities will then be cancelled, and students will generally be expected to proceed home at the first available opportunity.

Dismissal Procedure
-At the conclusion of the activity at 3:10 pm, students in Grade 2 – 4 are dismissed.  Students in Grade 1 who have an adult picking them up from the activity are handed over to the parent / carer. They will also be brought at the canteen
-Remaining Grade 1 students are walked to the bus area and handed over to bus monitors, or, those being picked up in the ES pick-up waiting area, are handed over to the campus supervisors there, while they await their ride.
-Any remaining Grade 1 students who are unaccounted for, are then taken to the ES Office, to enable us to contact their parents / carers.
