Informational meetings will be held the week of August 14 to allow your student to learn more about the activity before registering. These will take place at the same time as the activity itself. Registration takes place in the Payment Portal.
- ECs are semester based, meaning your registration is good through December. Registration for S2 will open up in early December at which point you can decide to join the same EC, try a new one, or stop at that time. If you do not sign up for anything now, you can join for S2 when that registration opens.

The EC Lead will stay with all students there until everyone is picked up; students should not be picked up at the Front Office. All students must be picked up within 10 minutes of the end time.
- Your student must be registered to attend after the first week.
- Please reach out to the EC Lead if you need to get a hold of your student during the course. As the Front Office closes at 3:45pm, only the EC Lead will be able to assist you. Please schedule ahead of time if you know you need to pick up your student early.
- If school is not in session or it is a half day, there will not be any ECs. There is only Study Club on Wednesdays to allow for faculty meetings and professional development.
- Siblings are not allowed to be on campus while waiting for another sibling who is attending an EC unless they are also registered to be somewhere on campus during that time.
