Janney Auxiliary Care (JAC) enrollment is designed to be flexible and meet the needs of all of our Janney families. The JAC program offers students the opportunity to build relationships with caring adults and peers while having breakfast at school, playing games and creating artwork, and playing outdoors. They also enjoy special events like Bingo, the JAC Talent Show, Holiday events, and JAC Carnival Day. JAC offers a regular routine, emphasizing play, good citizenship, and close relationships.
In an effort to keep all students safe, Janney+ follows the regular school-day nut-free policy for all programming. This nut-free policy includes those products that have peanuts and tree nuts in the ingredients list. Check for nut products and by-products in foods sent to school. Products that list nuts in the ingredients are not permitted. Note this nut-free policy extends to all Janney+ camp days, including offsite field trips.
Morning Care. This service is offered 7:30–8:35 a.m. Children have breakfast and play games with peers and JAC Counselors. Morning care begins on August 30, 2021.
Aftercare. This service is offered 3:15–6:00 p.m. Children are enrolled in grade-level classes with other JAC students. Aftercare begins on August 30, 2021.

Health & Safety. Please take a few minutes to review our updated health and safety plan which can be found here. In summary, Janney+ is adhering to the following guidelines, protocols, and safety measures to mitigate risk and safely return to play:
Daily Morning Care. Drop-off for JAC morning care is in the cafeteria any time after 7:30 a.m. Children will meet our morning care team and join their peer groups for outdoor play. If your child is new to Janney or JAC and does not know our routine, please escort your child to the cafeteria. DCPS offers breakfast for students during morning care hours. Please discuss with your child in advance if they are supposed to have breakfast at school.
Daily Aftercare Schedule. JAC provides students with a structured and stimulating environment before and after regular school hours. Our longer program in the afternoon offers both routine and choice: students enjoy snacks, afternoon meetings, and outdoor recreation with the same grade-level group of students daily.
By offering choices within a structure, JAC allows students to try new activities and broaden horizons while remaining safe and supervised. Afternoon JAC students can also take advantage of the enrichment activities offered by our Janney Enrichment Program (JEP) and our Janney Elementary Language Program (JELP). Our counselors work together to usher students between activities. If JEP and JELP students are registered for JAC afterward, parents may request that students go to the library to work on homework before joining regularly scheduled JAC activities.
Pick-up and Sign-out. It is Janney+ policy that parents or legal guardians always sign out their child. Remember to inform us if your child will not attend JAC or if someone other than an authorized person will pick up your student. That person should bring identification in order for staff to approve student release. All pick up changes should be emailed to:
JAC pick-up procedures are as follows
Behavioral Expectations. Students are expected to act in a manner appropriate for a school environment. Persistent behavioral issues will be addressed with parents and the school and could result in dismissal from JAC. In such cases, refunds are not provided.
Cancellation Policy. For JAC programs, there is a 20% non-refundable deposit at the time of registration. Families are responsible for giving 30-days notice of cancellation before receiving a refund. A $15 fee is assessed for all cancellations.
Contact JAC. The JAC Director, Sara Cohen, can be reached by email year round at JAC@janneyschool.org or by phone at 202-442-8673 during the school year.
