After school programs

After-school programs are back in 2022!

 

Starting April 11th, 2022, we will be offering after-school programs on-site at Rosa Parks running till the end of the school year.

 

Family chaperone

All clubs must have an adult family member as a chaperon who will be on-site throughout the entire session, signing students in (and contacting the office/family if a child is absent), and signing the students out. Chaperones must be Rosa Parks PTSA members, also be approved volunteers, and abide by all vaccination requirements from Lake Washington School District (LWSD). You can read more on how to register on the Volunteering in LWSD page on the LWSD website.

 

If there is no available volunteer for a session, that session will need to be canceled.
