LEAP Policies and Procedures
What is Leap and Compass Programs?
LEAP understands students at 51 have after-school obligations with their talent programs. We ask families to email the program to inform the program of the days your child will be in rehearsals or working with a teacher after-school. This is considered an excused absence.
Responsibility: Means to come to the Leap program on the days you are assigned. Contact the program to inform Stephanie and Cristina of absences and coming straight to the cafeteria at dismissal time.
Ready to Learn: Means being open to learn new things and listen to your teacher.
How is After-school Different than the School Day?
Supervision- Students are never allowed to be alone in the building. They will always be supervised by an adult and cannot walk alone in the hallways.
When LEAP starts- Students are not allowed to leave the building at dismissal time. They must report directly to the cafeteria. Once in the cafeteria they are not allowed to leave.
All students must do one session of HW time and/or Activity. Students are not permitted to do only HW time. Students can do two sessions of an activity.
How often does LEAP meet?
LeAp meets 5 days a week and runs the entire school year (September through June). For any LeAp schedule changes, or any modified half-day and school holiday schedules, please regularly check the News and Notices section on our homepage.
Does my child have to go to LEAP everyday?
Your child is not required to attend LeAp every day of the week. They can attend LeAp from one day a week up to five days a week. Whether your child wants to drop a day or add more days, you must contact Stephanie Weymouth and Cristina Angeles.
