Fay After School Clubs, Fall Term 2020

Fall 2020 Clubs begin the week of September 21 and each club meets once per week, from 3:00 - 4:30 pm. Please carefully check the dates that each club meets. 

During the fall of 2020, please note that all clubs are grouped by grade in order to follow COVID-19 procedures and to help keep our students safe. Each day of the week there is a single club offering for each individual grade. In previous years, we have been able to offer more options, and we hope to continue this once social distancing restrictions are lifted. 

Please note that Clubs must have a minimum enrollment to run. If a program has low enrollment, students will be able to transfer to another Club or receive a refund.
