Berkeley LEARNS After School Program

Hello King Families,

The beginning of the 2016-2017 school year for LEARNS After School Program is finally here! LEARNS provides amazing opportunities for your student as well as your family through outstanding academic, enrichment, and arts programs, as well as a superior sports program.

To begin this new adventure with LEARNS, you must enroll in the LEARNS Program. The first opportunity for registration will be held on Tuesday, August 23 from 2:00-5:30 for incoming 6th grade and new families, and on Thursday, August 25 from 2:00-5:30 for returning families (7th & 8th grades) on the lawn next to B-1. Please take advantage of these early registration dates and avoid the last minute rush. The second opportunity for registration will be at the Welcome Fair on Monday, August 29.

This letter will guide you through the Berkeley LEARNS After School Program enrollment process at King.

These forms MUST be completed front and back.  Please be sure to write your email address legibly as this is our primary form of communication. All forms MUST be completed before coming to registration.  This ensures a smooth process for all.

Step Two: Income Verification

There is a monthly fee to participate in the Berkeley LEARNS programs at King. Our sports teams are part of the Berkeley LEARNS program at King and are NOT a separate program.

Any family paying less than the full-fee rate MUST provide proof of income. Please provide a photocopy of your W-4 from last year or a photocopy of two recent pay stubs for each member of the household who is employed. We will be unable to make copies of these documents during registration.

Step Three: Payment

Please bring the payment for your student’s first month of enrollment in Berkeley LEARNS After School Program at the time of enrollment. Payment by check or money order made payable to BUSD is preferred.  Your student’s name MUST be written clearly in the memo portion of the check. Cash in the EXACT amount will also be accepted.

Enrollment is considered INCOMPLETE without payment. Your student will NOT be able to attend Berkeley LEARNS After School Program until the registration process has been completed.

Key Dates

  • Berkeley LEARNS After School Program begins on September 1st.
  • Enrichment classes begin several weeks after school starts.

Students participating in the After School Program should meet in the Amphitheater in front of the gym immediately concluding their classes for the school day. Activities will be available for students to choose each day until enrichment classes begin in mid-September.

If you are picking up your student after 3:00, come directly to the LEARNS Office in S-1 and we will have your student meet you at there.

Please do not hesitate to become a part of this wonderful program! We look forward to a great year together!
