Clubs
@Somerset Elementary School
Winter 2021 Clubs

During registration, go to each listing for detailed information on dates and time.


Open Enrollment / Early Bird Registration

 EAI offers open enrollment, with a specific registration start date. Club fees for the first four days of each registration period will include Early Bird pricing!   After the four-day Early Bird window, online registration will be available for an additional $10 per club.  However, we urge all parents to take advantage of early bird enrollment so minimum enrollment numbers can be met and accurate rosters can be distributed to instructors and home rooms prior to club start dates.

Club Cancellations and Make-Up Sessions

EAI will notify club students one hour ahead of club start time if severe weather will require an in person, outdoor club to be cancelled.  There is one rain day makeup on the schedule for each club.  If more than one severe weather day occurs, no refunds will be provided.

How Many Clubs Can My Child Sign up For?

Each child may sign up for as many clubs as he or she would like. Students are registered in clubs on a first come, first served basis.  If your child’s first choice isn’t available this session, EAI will try to offer this same club in a future session.

Refunds

In many situations, class enrollment determines our ability to offer a class and pay our instructors. Because of this, there will be no refunds issued after confirmation notes have been sent.  

Financial Aid/Scholarship Fund

Families receiving lunch assistance during the school year may take one class per semester without charge.  Additionally, if you do not qualify for lunch assistance, but your financial situation prevents your child from registering, please contact Mrs. Morris (301) 657-4985.  All inquiries are confidential. 


Behavior Policy

Students are expected to:

¨   Follow all Covid-19 policies listed below,

¨   Follow cooperatively and politely all directions given by the instructor,

¨   Treat others with respect,

¨   Keep hands, feet, and objects to himself/herself,

¨   Be where he/she belongs at all times, and

¨   Take responsibility for his/her behavior

¨   Student must be present during the school day to participate in after school club.


If a child is not willing or able to follow these expectations, the following consequences will result:

       1st time – Warning to student and parent;

         2nd time – Child will be asked to leave club. (There will be no refunds.)

Instructor Screening and Safety

EAI requires all instructors, coaches and club administrators — all adults who come into contact with students — to submit background checks and complete the MCPS mandated Child Neglect and Abuse training. Vendors must alert EAI if they are sending a substitute teacher or aide and EAI must have the substitute’s background check on file.


What if my child gets injured during a club?

Children will always be supervised, and we take precautions to prevent accidents from happening.  In the event of an accident, EAI will notify the parent(s).  Our staff is not authorized to provide medical care.  While Enrichment Academies does not provide medical care, the onsite Club Administrator will apply band-aids for minor cuts and bruises.
