Bel Aire After School Print E-mail

No classes on school holidays!

To ensure your child’s safety please review the following:

Getting to after-school classes
Children are responsible for reporting to the appropriate room or sports area at Bel Aire School immediately after school, where instructors will meet the children. Parents must assess whether their child can assume this level of responsibility. If your child is going to be absent from a recreation specialty class contact the recreation office at 435-4355.

Release of Students at the End of Class and Late Fees
Children must be picked up promptly at the class location. In order for students to be released to meet parents elsewhere on campus, walk home, or remain on campus, you must provide written permission to the recreation staff. A late fee of $5.00 per each 10 minutes of lateness will be assessed for late pick-ups. A bill will be issued and payment is to be made to The Ranch. If the late pick-up problem persists, your child’s enrollment may be cancelled.

Coordination with Childcare Facility
You will need to make arrangements with the Belvedere-Tiburon Childcare Center to have your child released from their care to attend our specialty classes. Due to staffing limitations, we are not able to pick-up or drop-off children at the BTCCC.

Behavior standards
Our rules are simple and reflect our concern for the safety and welfare of the children both as individuals and as part of the group. Uncooperative and disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to remove a child from the recreation program if it is deemed necessary for the safety of your child or the physical and emotional well being of the other children in our care.

Absence Notification Penalty
In order for the staff to maximize instruction time, it is necessary to call The Ranch at 435-4355 if your child is going to be absent from a recreation class. Failure to give advance notice if your child is going to be absent will result in a $10 non-notification fee being assessed.

NO CLASS ON SCHOOL HOLIDAYS - 9/1, 9/15, 10/20, & 11/11

Fee: $230/8 weeks

The Team LOLA program is back in Tiburon this Fall! This very popular Marin-based nutrition & run training program is for girls ages 8-12. This 8 week  training program is full of nutrition, fitness and fun for youth. They will enjoy a noncompetitive, supportive team environment while learning good nutrition  habits and train to participate in the Tiburon 5k on October 5th.* Race participation is optional but so fun for the girls and their families! Each family is  responsible for their own race registration which is separate from LOLA. All levels welcome, no formal run experience necessary.

Each week the girls will begin with a brief informative & interactive discussion on topics related to health & nutrition. These age appropriate discussions get  the girls thinking and talking about their fitness and how to live a healthy lifestyle. The remainder of the hour is spent actively outside with warm-up games,  walking & running hills along with “speed” work (to build their strength & leg power), sustained flat runs (to build endurance), cool down, and  stretching. The girls will also learn the simple fundamentals of running, pacing, good form & posture.

What to Bring: Running shoes, comfortable clothes, & water bottle. (Girls will receive an official Team LOLA run training tee with registration)
