Before and After School Program

  • Hello Parents,

    Merrill Elementary School offers an After-School Program. Students will go directly to the gym at dismissal, where they will be served a snack. Students will rotate between different enrichment programs throughout the school year.

    Each student will be expected to follow the Merrill PBIS expectations.  Students who do not follow the expectations will be dealt with on a case by case basis.  In order for our program to operate effectively, early pick up will not be available. Attendance will be monitored and students with poor attendance will be removed from the after school program..

    There is also an expectation that students will be picked up on time. Pickup time will be at 4:45 with the expectation that students will be gone no later than 4:55. Students who are picked up late three times will be removed from After School Program.  Parents should pick up their child/children at the main office entrance/parking lot on Nelson. Parents may park or use the pick up lane. If you choose to park, you will need to park in the lot, get out of your car and come get your child/children. Pick up procedures will be similar to normal everyday dismissal.  If a parent or emergency contact is not picking up the child(ren), an email or dojo message needs to be sent to Ms Martinez or a call to the office to let us know who is picking up the child(ren) no later than 3:00pm.

    We are excited for our Merrill kids to start this program. We look forward to building relationships with your child/children while offering them some fun activities that will give them new experiences. We are looking to have some fun healthy activities and not dealing with discipline issues during this time.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through email Ms. Martinez ( or dojo.  Please make sure that you are connected to your child’s classroom through Class Dojo. Once the program is up and running, your child will be added to the After School Program class.

    Ms. Martinez (After-School Coordinator)
