Program and Registration Information

The Janney Enrichment Program (JEP) provides a fun, diverse, and affordable program of after-school classes for children from pre-kindergarten through 5th grade. Whether exploring science concepts with our Garden Guardians, creating works of art, cooking, dancing, and singing, or playing scrabble or chess, kids enrolled in JEP are engaged, learning, and having fun. Classes vary in content and approach to accommodate different learning styles and interests and offer content for a variety of ages and stages. Nearly all classes are multi-grade and allow kids to experiment, learn new skills, and develop the confidence to succeed inside and outside of the classroom. Please see the JEP Winter Session II Catalog for the list of classes that will be offered for the Winter 2022 session!

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.

Our programs use the Campsite registration system. You may log in to your family’s Campsite account to register or view your current registrations, pay a balance, complete your children’s enrollment forms and change enrollment details, and update your family information. If needed, create your Campsite account using the link at the bottom of the login page.

See the table below for detailed JEP session information.

Program Policies and Procedures

Parent Handbook. A complete overview of our policies and procedures for the 2021-2022 school year is in our 2021-22 Janney+ Parent Handbook received upon registration in your Campsite Parent Dashboard.

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:

  • Classes will adhere to social distancing and recommended guidelines
  • All participants will be required to wear masks during indoor and outdoor settings
  • Students and staff will complete a health screening prior to joining their class
  • Protocols for reporting and quarantining will be followed
  • Janney+ will continue to engage with local and state authorities and adhere to all guidelines recommended, making changes to the protocol, as needed
  • All eating will be done outside
  • Classes will spend as much time as feasible outside
  • Janney+ continues to follow DC Health’s guidance on travel recommending unvaccinated individuals get a Covid tested 3-5 upon return from travel and self-quarantine for 7 days
  • Janney+ will adhere to DCPS requirements surrounding vaccination for staff

Registration. For most classes, registrations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis as classes are subject to minimum and maximum enrollment. Early registration is strongly encouraged. Once a class is filled to capacity, registrants will be placed on a waitlist. If space becomes available, registrants will be notified by email and should confirm their intent to enroll in the class. If no response is received by the requested time, space will be offered to the next person on the waitlist. Late registrations are accepted when space becomes available and with the permission of the instructor. Returning students for piano and drum lessons take enrollment priority to allow for continuity in instruction. If you would like to arrange a meeting with a class instructor at the end of a JEP session, please contact the JEP Director and she will coordinate this with the instructor.

JEP registration requests after the close of registration will be assessed a $25 late fee.

Tuition Reduction. We are able to provide one scholarship per child per semester, subject to availability. Please contact PlusED@janneyschool.org to request a tuition reduction.

Payment. Payment is due in full for all JEP classes upon registration. Students enrolled across multiple Janney+ programs will receive partial discounts.

Refund and Cancellation. JEP reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of cancellation, the JEP Director will notify families in advance and refund the entire course fee. If school or class is canceled due to inclement weather or other events, we will attempt to reschedule classes, but this is not guaranteed.

Refunds are given for registrations canceled before the second class meeting of the session, minus the 20% non-refundable deposit and $25 cancellation fee. There are no refunds for cancellations after the second JEP class. If your child is able to transfer into a different JEP class, rather than canceling altogether, there is no transfer or cancellation fee. At the discretion of the JEP Director, in the case of special circumstances, refunds may be granted or pro-rated for the classes already taken only if the vendor agrees to a full or partial refund. There are no refunds or make-ups for missed classes.

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 the JEP session. In such cases, refunds are not provided.

Schedule. Students enrolled in JEP are released to the cafeteria after participating in the normal school day. Students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are escorted to the cafeteria by their classroom teacher or paraprofessional while older students are sent unescorted directly to JEP from their classroom. In the cafeteria, students are signed in by the Enrichment Director. Students will be given a small snack that they will be able to eat outside on the blacktop. Snack will take place in 5-minute increments where students will be split by grade level.

Students are collected by class instructors and escorted to their assigned classroom in time for their 3:30 p.m. JEP session. Classes run from 3:30-4:25 p.m. at which time students are escorted to the field by the instructor for dismissal.

Students will be dismissed in grade order:

  • 4:35-4:40 PM: PK, K, 1st
  • 4:40-4:45 PM: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th
  • 4:45 PM: Students going to JAC will be transitioned to their JAC group

Parents MUST sign out their students at the desk BEFORE picking them up. Please ensure that all pick-up persons are placed under the “Authorized Pick-Up” section on Campsite. If someone comes to pick up the student but is not on the “Authorized Pick-Up” list, we will be calling the parents to confirm the said person is able to pick up the student. 

If you are concerned that your older student is not capable of transitioning to the cafeteria unescorted for JEP check-in, please email enrichment@janneyschool.org. Depending on the reason, this may result in determining a way to accommodate the student or the student being unable to participate in JEP.

It is very important that you let the JEP team know if your child will not attend a specific class so that we can keep track of all students. Please email schedule changes to enrichment@janneyschool.org and plusattendance@janneyschool.org.

Children who are enrolled in JAC in the afternoon will be transitioned from JEP to JAC by one of the JAC staff.

Students who walk home by themselves without an adult may only do so if they are 10-years of age AND a parent has filled out the “Self-Dismissal form” for the student on in the Campsite system.

Remember to inform us if your child will not attend JEP and 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:

Contact JEP. The JEP Director, Brianna Guilherme, can be reached by email year-round at enrichment@janneyschool.org or by phone at 202-724-8950 during the school year.

Janney+ is a parent-run non-profit. Tax ID: 82-101-5792.
