HOW IT WORKS
HTLC After School Program is offered from August to June catering to the needs of school-age students attending Alhambra Unified School District schools, namely Brightwood, Repetto, Monterey Highlands, and Marguerita. The program’s main focus is homework assistance and completion, as well as offering supplemental practice in California State Standards Common Core Math, Reading Comprehension, and Language Arts. In small teacher to student ratio classroom environments (10 students max per classroom), our students will receive help from their teachers to better understand assignments, have their work corrected, receive help and tutelage with challenging problems, and gain extra practice in standards that parallel the content they are learning in school. Paired with up-to-date technology, our team will guide the student in perfecting their study habits and polishing their academic skills.
Yes, our entire staff will be vaccinated for COVID-19.
Yes, the students will have 30 minutes of snack and recess time.
We are limiting class sizes to 9 students.
We offer a pull-up valet drop-off and pick-up lane. When parents drop off their child, a staff member will greet them at the parent’s vehicle and escort them inside the facility. Parents must communicate with the staff and message their arrival (15 mins advance notice is preferred) for pick-ups via their assigned private WhatsApp chat group. Upon arrival, they can park and message their parking space number or pull up in the valet lane. The child will then be escorted to the vehicle with all his or her belongings.
Our center will close at 6:00 p.m. After this time, parents will be charged $1.00 per minute past closing until pick-up (to be paid at pick-up time).
Our drivers pick up from the following schools: Brightwood, Repetto, Monterey Highlands, and Marguerita. For certain schools, a coordinator will be sent to check off students as they exit their school and assist with boarding the HTLC vehicles. Students under eight years old will be required to use a booster seat supplied by HTLC. Students are required to be at the pick-up location immediately after dismissal. Parents are required to notify the center of absences via SchoolCues or WhatsApp so the drivers do not waste time waiting for absent students. If a child is not at the pick-up location for any reason, our team will message/call the parent/guardian accordingly. In the event that we are not able to reach anyone, we will leave a message at the front office of the school and depart.
For the safety of the students, parents and all other visitors will need to make an appointment to enter the facility or remain in the lobby for assistance.
Snacks are not included in the tuition. The Snack Cart (all foods will be sealed and packaged) will be available should the students like to purchase using their snack account. Parents will need to open a snack account for their children in order for them to access the cart. Parents are welcome to set food restrictions and set limits on the amount spent. Students must have their parent’s permission to purchase and money must be available in their snack account.
A snack account allows students to make purchases off the Snack Cart. The Snack Cart is open during break times for students to purchase foods in case they do not have packed snacks from home. Parents/guardians can open a snack account and deposit a certain amount of money into the account. As students make purchases, the amount is deducted from their snack account balance. There are no credit extensions for the account.
Will there be lunch offered on Short Days and Minimum Days? What type of food will there be? Are the foods catered or in-house? What if my child has dietary restrictions or food allergies?
Lunch will only be offered to those who subscribe to the Lunch Service. The Lunch Service subscription is $35 every four weeks, including lunches for only weekly short days. Extra Minimum Days Lunch Service will incur extra charges. Foods will be packaged by the restaurant/catering facility (kids’ meals or combos). Menus will be sent monthly. There will be options but no customizations. Lunches may be purchased from McDonald’s, Ono Hawaiian, Jay’s (personal pizzas, not slices), Wendy’s, KFC, Jack in the Box, In-N-Out, Taco Bell, etc. ) Foods will not be prepared at Harmony Tree. Please advise our team if your child has dietary restrictions or food allergies.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to refrigerate or heat up your child’s lunches as space in our refrigerator is limited. We cannot guarantee staff members will be readily available to heat up the students’ lunches.
Harmony Tree will provide 5 complimentary sealed water bottles on an as-needed basis. And we will allow students to store an extra water bottle in their cubby for refill purposes. Harmony Tree has filtered water for consumption on its premises.
