Middle School Program Information

  • Purpose
    The School District of Hillsborough County offers an affordable, high quality, fee-based after-school program for the middle school-aged child. What children do during non-school hours has a critical impact on school achievement and long-term success. Through the use of certified teachers, each program will provide a safe and caring environment, as well as a highly focused academic schedule. The middle school-aged child’s need for various other enrichment activities will also be a component of the program.

    Hours of Operation
    Program Standard Hours of Operation are:
    7:30 AM (times may vary per site) – start of school
    School Dismissal - 6:00 PM - School Days (M-F)
    The program will be open on early release days from 2:15 - 6:00 PM.

    Late pick-up fees will be charged as follows
    $5.00/15 Minutes - Meaning a 6:30 pm pick=up time would result in $10.00 worth of late fees. Habitual tardiness in pick-up of students will result in the dismissal from the program. Law enforcement and/or child abuse authorities may be contacted to initiate abandoned child procedures if the parent/guardian does not notify their school's HOST program before 6:30 PM.

    Parents and/or guardians will be notified of all medical emergencies. If the parent cannot be reached, the instructor will take proper necessary action.
