Menands School is excited to reinstate some extracurricular clubs and sports, on a limited basis, for Grades 3-8. The first trimester runs until Dec. 10. Club offerings occur after school for one hour and bus transportation home is available.
The club offerings are intended to maximize opportunities for students at all grade levels while adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols, including limiting participants, keeping students in cohorts, and providing activities outdoors when possible.
An important reminder for parents of elementary students: On any day that there is a change in a student’s regular dismissal procedure, the student must bring a “blue dismissal note” to his or her homeroom teacher. Parents must send in a blue dismissal note on any day that an elementary student stays after for a club, indicating if they will be picked up or take the late bus.
In accordance with District Policy no. 4715, students must remain in good academic standing to participate in extra-curricular activities. Participation in after school activities may be suspended for a period until a student’s grades improve.
