The afternoon schedule typically provides about 20 minutes of focused and quiet time for students
to work on homework or read. Staff will monitor and encourage students and help answer homework-related
questions. However, children are responsible for their own assignments. Children who do not have homework
are expected to read or participate in quiet activities during this time.
If school is cancelled or students are sent home early due to poor weather conditions, Camp Fire's After School
programs shall also be canceled. If there is a two-hour morning delay, programs will run as scheduled.
