    Starting September 2016 any student who wishes to participate in the afterschool program/ASAP must first have a parent or legal gardian complete a enrollment intake packet. Paperwork given to ACCORD in previous years will not be accepted, brand new intakes will still have to be competed before a child starts either program. Intakes can be done in our room or over the phone, but in person signatures are required before starting. Home visits may be discussed, if no transportation is available.

    Although this is a added hassle to an already stressfull time of year, it is the only way we can assure we have correct and up to date information for the safty of all our children.

    Please contact myself or Bonnie to schedule a time to compete an intake.

    Our afterschool transportation for the 2016-2017 School Year will be starting Monday, September 12th.  Monday-Friday @ 4:45pm, 21st CCLC Program and Canaseraga Central School will be providing a bus to transport children home. If they participate in  ASAP or  ACCORD Afterschool Clubs, your child will now be able to get a free ride home. You can breathe easy knowing that they will have safe reliable transportation home.  Conditions that apply to this are: 

    You must participate in ASAP or the AFTERSCHOOL program on that given day to be able to ride the late bus. The late bus is not to be used for other students (i.e. Rides home from practice, dance, play, ect.). There will be a list given to the bus garage daily of the students who attended ASAP or the AFTERSCHOOL program to prevent other students from taking advantage of the bus.  

    Only students enrolled in the 21st CCLC Program will be able to take advantage of this so please contact Samantha Stenzel or Bonnie Leigh to set up an enrollment appointment or with questions! 

    Students who live in town will be ineligible to receive afterschool bussing unless discussed and approved with the district/transportation department due to extenuating circumstances (i.e. weather, disabilities, etc.)
