Third St Clubhouse Handbook
If you are new to Third St. or SME, you will be able to pay online once your child is entered in the system.
All applicants (new and returning) must use the online registration form only.
If your child is returning, accounts must be in good standing. You may check your balance online. If you have any questions feel free to email Shawn_Wilson@ABSS.k12.nc.us
All payments must be paid online.
Monthly fees will only be billed one month at a time.
All payments are due by the 1st of each month. Late payments will be assessed on the 5th of each month.
The first payment is due before student begins.
There must be no deferments. No payment = No services.
If a parent decides their student is switching from in-person instruction to virtual instruction, services should be terminated.
Withdrawal and Re-enrollment Process
If you elect to withdraw your child, you must turn in an AFTERSCHOOL CARE TERMINATION NOTICE. These may be obtained from the daycare director. We require a two-week notice for all withdrawals. Without a withdrawal note, charges will continue to accrue to your account.
If you wish to change your child’s status (example part-time to full time), you must complete a CHANGE OF STATUS REQUEST. This too, may be obtained from the daycare director. You may only change your child’s status one time during the current school year.
Delinquent accounts will be grounds for suspension from the program. In addition, a weekly administrative charge of $10.00 will be assessed on all outstanding accounts not to exceed $20. Payment will be considered late if not paid by the Thursday after the child has stayed. Failure to pay the bill after a two-week period will result in suspension from the program until the payment is made.
Reentering the program will be based on space, availability, and payment record.
Late fees will be assessed on the 6th of each month.
Late pick up: Any parent arriving late will be required to pay a $10 late fee .
You will need your child's powerschool number to complete online transactions. If your child is new to our school, we will provide you with your child's powerschool number as soon as they are available.

The program is in the gym, media center, cafeteria, and playground. The pickup desk is in the gym. If children are on the playground, the cones will block the driveway between the playground and gym and parents will need to park in front of the school and walk around to the gym. When the cones are not out, you are welcome to pull up to the gym and sign your child out.
The 3rd Street Clubhouse program will provide an afternoon snack each day. If your child is unable to eat certain snacks or would like seconds, they may bring a snack from home. Please alert us on the application form of any food allergies your child has.

Registration for the 3rd Street Clubhouse Before/After School Program
Parents/guardians will be required to fill out a registration form online. Each application must be completed in its entirety. Registration will also be accepted online throughout the year providing space is available.
Children must be enrolled at South Mebane in grades K-5
Safe Arrival/Departure of Children
For Before School Care, children will use the gym entrance. Parents should wait in their car while children are screened. Students arriving for Before School Care must be screened for temperature.
A staff member will sign in all children for Before School Care.
For After School Care, children will leave their classroom at the end of the school day and be sent directly to the gym. A Third Street employee will sign them in.
Parents/guardians are to pick up their child(ren) directly from the program at or before closing time (6:00pm).
If a child will be absent from the regular school day due to illness, he/she should not attend the After-School Program that day. The program site does not have the facilities to care for sick children.
Parents/guardians should notify the Director and the school if there is a change of address, work or home telephone numbers, or emergency contacts (persons who can be notified if parents are unavailable).
If a child is being picked up by someone other than the parents or is going to leave with another child, the Director must have written or verbal permission from the parent. We will ask for ID to make sure that person is listed on the registration sheet or note.
When a child is not picked up by closing time, 3rd Street Clubhouse After School staff will call the parent’s/guardian’s home, work, and cell phone numbers. If there is no answer, he/she will call the emergency numbers given for the child. If neither parents/guardians nor emergency contacts can be reached within 45 minutes after closing time, the staff will call 911, ask for the social worker on call and explain the situation, and will remain with the child until further action is taken.
School Closures/Late Openings Due to Inclement Weather
When school is dismissed early due to inclement weather, the 3rd Street Clubhouse After School Program does not operate. Please talk with your child and notify their teacher about what he/she should do if this happens. If you are not part of the “Early Bird” program, you may not drop your child off during delayed starting times.

Student Conduct & Third St Clubhouse Program
Appropriate behavior is required for students to remain in the Third St Clubhouse Program. Expectations for student behavior are the same as expectations during the school day. These expectations are detailed in the ABSS Student Code of Conduct and are distributed to all students at the beginning of each school year.
Minor incidents will be handled by the counselors. Parents will be alerted to any problems or patterns of misbehavior through this Daycare Discipline Referral Form, phone call, or conference. Repeated behaviors or patterns of misbehavior may also be referred to the director and/or our assistant principal or principal. Possible consequences for misbehavior are listed below.
Talk with Student
Sits with Counselor
Loss of Privilege
Suspension from Daycare
In the event of a serious infraction, suspension from the program may be necessary for either a short term or permanent timeframe. Suspension from the program means that the student will not be allowed to participate in the Early Bird or After School Care program for the duration of the suspension. After three documented incidences, your child may be removed from the program for the remainder of the school year.
If your child needs medication during the time he/she is in the after school program, written permission, and instructions from your medical doctor are required. You may obtain a medication form from the school nurse or from the school office.
