*Spring Enrichment Announcement*

We are excited to announce our offerings for the Janney+ Spring Enrichment Program!

We have something for everyone, from video game creating to taekwondo, knitting, cooking, football, and soccer. Whether students are trying something new or perfecting a skill, Janney+ helps to facilitate making children feel comfortable and courageous while having fun!

Please see the attached JEP Spring Catalog for class offerings and descriptions that will be offered this spring. Janney+ will offer both in-person and virtual enrichment classes. Virtual classes will be online from 3:45-4:45 p.m. each day. In-person classes will take place outdoors at Janney from 3:30-4:30 p.m. The spring session will run from April 26th- June18th.

New, this session, we are also offering a Wednesday half day camp!! This camp will take place from 1:00-5:00 p.m. every Wednesday during the spring session. Each week, students will get the opportunity to engage in a structured movement class led by Coach T and an art class led by Ms. Kim as well as free play.

Due to the updated CDC guidance we have increased our capacity limit per class to 15 students maximum.

To help minimize the mixing of students we ask that you kindly only enroll in one in-person class. Please feel free to enroll in as many virtual classes as you would like!

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, change enrollment details, and update your family information. If needed, please create your Campsite account using the link at the bottom of the login page. This process, inclusive of completing all family and student forms, takes approximately 15 minutes.

Registration will open on Campsite 4/8 at 8pm. In addition to our yearly forms, you will be asked to read and acknowledge receipt of our Covid health and safety procedures prior to enrolling. You can also find them attached at the bottom of this email.

In summary, Janney+ is adhering to the following guidelines, protocols, and safety measures to mitigate risk and safely return to play:

  • In-person classes will adhere to social distancing and recommended guidelines and occur outdoors
  • All participants will be required to wear masks
  • Classes will be no larger than 15 students
  • Students and staff will complete a health screening and temperature check prior to joining their class
  • Children will have their own equipment and it will be cleaned/sanitized between sessions
  • 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 protocol, as needed
  • Janney+ will not be offering a snack. Snacks are allowed to be brought from home.
  • Janney+ will not host in-person programming if there is extreme weather (thunder, lightning) or temperatures above 100 degrees.
  • Spring Break Travel: We continue to follow the Mayor’s Order regarding travel to high-risk states and DC Health travel guidance. Please continue to check here for updated information on states that are considered high-risk.  You MUST quarantine following your return or show results of a negative test taken 3-5 days after your return.

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 confidence to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

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 log in page.

The JEP class catalog is sent home with students in advance of open registration for each of the three sessions offered during the 2019-20 school year. It is also available online. To prepare for JEP session I registration, see the JEP Session III 2019-2020 Catalog and JEP Session III 2019-2020 Description of Classes for detailed information.

Program Policies and Procedures

Parent Handbook. A complete reporting of our policies and procedures for the 2019-2020 school year is in our 2019-20 Janney Parent Handbook received upon registration in your Campsite Parent Dashboard.

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, the 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.

During the 19-20 school year, discounts for students enrolled in JAC/JEP will no longer be done through coupon codes. All discounts will be pushed to student Campsite accounts. Students enrolled in JAC/JEP will receive a 10% discount for one student registration per session. If students are enrolled in multiple JEP classes, families will receive the discount on the class with the highest tuition. Discounts will be pushed by day of the week that a student has both JAC and JEP.
If a student is enrolled in monthly JAC, the 10% discount will be split across the months that the student is enrolled in JAC. Discounts will be pushed via mass transaction monthly after JEP/JAC match is confirmed.Families must have their student registered for JAC by the first of a month in order to be eligible for the discount that month.
If a student is enrolled in Annual JAC, they will have their discount pushed in a lump sum the month after they enroll their student in annual registration.

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.

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 cancelled due to inclement weather or other events, we will attempt to reschedule classes, but this is not guaranteed.

Refunds are given for registrations cancelled 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 cancelling 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 enrichment staff and are given a snack and water. Students are collected by class instructors and escorted to their assigned classroom in time for their 3:30p.m. JEP session. Classes run from 3:30-4:30p.m. at which time students are escorted to the cafeteria by the instructor.

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.

Pick-up and Sign-outJEP pick up is at 4:45. Please arrive closer to 4:45 to limit the amount of congestion in the hallway.

  • Students are picked-up from the school cafeteria.
  • Enter at the West-side, front atrium door. For student and staff safety, the school’s front doors are locked at time of pick up.
  • Once students complete their JEP class at 4:30, the class vendor transitions them to the cafeteria. Please do not take your child out of line when they are transitioning from their JEP class to the cafeteria.
  • The period between 4:30 and 4:45 will give adequate time for all students to transition from JEP and be checked in to the cafeteria by the class vendor.
  • When students arrive in the cafeteria, they will sit in their designated line for “pick-up” or “JAC” organized by grade. Students who are being picked up will be on the left side of the cafeteria and students going to JAC will be on the right.
  • JAC Counselors will be in the cafeteria awaiting the arrival of their students at 4:30. Once all of their grade level students arrive, Counselors will collect them and leave the cafeteria.
  • Caregivers will then be called by grade level to pick up their students in the cafeteria. Students will not be released to you in the hallway. If you have students in multiple grades, you may pick up all students when the first applicable grade is called. 
  • Please do not sign out until you collect your student.
  • The cafeteria doors will remain closed. Please do not enter the cafeteria to pick up your child until their grade level is called.

Children who have not been picked-up by 4:45p.m. will automatically be signed into JAC. When a child is signed into JAC from JEP, parents or legal guardians agree to the JAC terms and conditions laid out in that program, regardless of whether the child is already registered for JAC and may be required to complete JAC registration forms. Once a student is signed over to JAC, JEP is no longer responsible for the care of that student. Contact details for that student are made available to JAC staff.

Students who walk home by themselves without an adult may only do so if a note from a parent or guardian has been provided to the JEP Director or permission has been granted 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.
