After school

Students who remain at school after dismissal must be under an adult’s supervision. Gordon has a number of programs that run between 3:30pm and 5:30pm that offer each student safe, positive and age-appropriate ways to spend the afternoon.

Gators, for children fourth grade and younger, and YAP, for Middle School students, are the core of the after school programs, covering all of the grades, every day that the school building is open. 

To insure proper supervision, students will report to Gators or YAP when waiting before or after another after school program.

After school offerings are coordinated so that they follow the same three-season calendar as closely as possible. Dates and registration information are posted at

The rules and policies outlined in the Gordon Handbook apply during the hours after dismissal as well. This includes the prohibition of students possessing cell phones, iPods, tablets and electronic games.

Students must be picked up by one of the adults named on the Authorization for Pickup Form that is on file for every Gordon student. Gordon staff reserve the right to check the identification of any adult before dismissing a student into their care.

All students must be signed out by a parent or guardian with a Gators or YAP staff member. YAP students may also be signed out by a parent or guardian in the front office.
