Program Details for In-Person Support at Beye & Lincoln, Full Day, Trimester 1 2020/21
We are very pleased to partner with D97, to help students successfully navigate their online school day, in person, at Beye and Lincoln Elementary Schools, throughout Trimester 1. Students must be enrolled at a D97 school to participate.
To create the safest possible environment for your child and family:
Your child will be grouped with the same cohort of up to 15 children, for the Trimester. The exception is if a space becomes available, we will provide a new child the opportunity to join the cohort.
Those who wish to attend part time (3x per week) may attend on M/W/F (AVAILABLE at Beye)
Those who wish to attend part time (2x per week) may attend on T/TH (AVAILABLE at Lincoln & Beye)
Full time students (M/T/W/Th/F) will share one classroom (AVAILABLE at Beye)
In-person remote learning at Beye and Lincoln is $50 per day, 7:45am to 3pm
In-person art enrichment at Beye and Lincoln from dismissal to 6pm is $25 per day (a 5 student minimum per classroom is required and as of August 23rd we have NOT met that minimum)
A 10% discount is awarded to families who have more than one child enrolled in the program
We calculate the monthly fee based on the days of the week your child attends and the total of those days per the first Trimester, divided by 3 (September through November). Fees are prorated for those who enter mid-trimester.
D97 is providing scholarships in the amount of $30 per day to students who receive free and reduced lunch.
By Discovery will also provide an additional scholarship of $20 per day to completely cover the daily program fee (7:45am to 3pm) for up to 6 families who receive free/reduced lunch.
Due to the generous contributions of individual donors, other scholarship assistance may be available for those who fall just outside of the requirement for free/reduced lunch. Scholarship recipients who are in need of classroom supplies may contact Jocelyne Adkins, Program Director for support from individual donors.
Payment is due on the 1st of the month. If the 1st falls on a weekend or holiday, payment is due on the next business day. Families will receive payment information via a "welcome email" following their registration.
Accepted Forms of Payment:

Your first invoice will arrive August 24th and your first payment is due on September 1st. A $25 late fee will be invoiced for each month a payment is submitted past the due date.
Enrollment is open throughout the Trimester, based upon availability. Families may be placed on a wait list.
Fees are pro-rated for those who enroll during the Trimester, based on participation days and availability.
A $50 non-refundable registration fee is required to secure your child's space (this fee is NOT APPLICABLE for those on the WAITLIST). Your registration fee will be applied to your 1st monthly payment. Please visit here within 24 hours of your registration. Registration fees not received within this time frame will render your registration void, re-opening the space for other registrants.
