About After School Clubs

Roland Park Clubs are optional after school programs provided to those who want them. They are fully managed by PTSA volunteers who work diligently to organize these extracurricular activities. We strive to provide low-cost, supplemental enrichment opportunities to give students additional exposure in the areas of arts, technology, health, sports and more. To see a list of our current clubs in progress, click the Clubs Registration button below (registration is currently closed).

The After School Clubs program is a privilege that PTSA enjoys offering to our Roland Park families. We ask for your cooperation and patience in remembering this is a volunteer- managed program.

Club Procedures

REGISTRATION:
The Third (Spring) Clubs Session registration will open on February 18th and will have a hard close on February 26th to ensure our volunteers have time to adequately address concerns and make adjustments. Please make every effort to finalize your club choices during this time. There will be no additions, switches, cancelations, or refunds after the 26th – no exceptions. Students must be registered for their club. If they are not registered for the club they will be dismissed to carline or HOST. All enrolled students will go directly to the gym at dismissal and meet their club teacher who will then bring them to their designated club location.
Note: When you register your child for a club, please include any adults that you authorize to pick up your child. Your child will not be released to any adults not in the Homeroom registration form, so please document those individuals.

PAYMENT:
All fees must be paid through the Homeroom website. There will be no checks or cash accepted. Vendors are not allowed to receive payments directly.

PICKUP:
Please be on time picking up your child. Vendors are unable to stay past student pickup time at 3:45pm on early release days and 4:45pm on all other days. If the child is not picked up on time, the vendor will take the child to HOST and you can pick them up there. Repeated late pickups will result in forced withdrawal from the club without refund. If your child is enrolled in HOST, the vendor will take them to HOST at the end of club time.

CAPACITY:
Each club vendor has a minimum number of students they require to be registered in order to hold that club.  If this number is not met, the vendor has the final decision whether to continue or cancel that club. Should cancellation occur, we will notify you promptly so that you may choose another club or make other arrangements for your child. Also, once a club reaches maximum capacity, you will be put on a waiting list.  You will be notified in the event an opening occurs.

BEHAVIORAL POLICY:
Clubs are a privilege that we enjoy offering to our Roland Park families. Your child is expected to behave respectfully, with kindness (no bullying), and without disrupting the class. Repeated behavioral incidents will result in forced withdrawal from the club without refund if the vendor choses to do so.
