Frequently Asked Questions
What is it?
Christian Heritage School policy requires that all Lower School students grades K through 5 must be under adult supervision while on the school campus, and the Kingsmen Kids After School Program offers a safe, fun, neighborhood environment right at CHS! Each afternoon, there is a snack provided (either crackers or fruit with water). Parents are welcome to send a snack for after school (no snacks containing nuts, please). There is a small library of books, games, and puzzles for younger students to enjoy. We also provide fun activities intended to reinforce classroom studies. Students are encouraged to work on their homework with assistance if needed and can participate in organized, indoor activities as well as outdoor free play (weather permitting).
When is it?
The Kingsmen Kids After School Program is available from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. each day and follows the CHS school calendar. After school care is not available on the days of parent teacher conferences, early dismissal days due to inclement weather, or any days that school is not in session.
Who will be taking care of my student?
Mrs. Humphries has a Bachelor of Arts degree and is CPR certified. She has two daughters currently enrolled in CHS.
Mrs. Cindy Robbers is CPR certified and has a daughter enrolled in CHS. Cindy is an alternate contact should you have questions about the program.
