Voyager Academy Care (after/before school) Program News, March 18, 2018

Dear Voyager Families,
There are many updates below for the care program. Please read in its entirety, and feel free to contact LatiaBoney should you have any questions or concerns.

Care Program Safety
In the wake of recent school shootings, I have inquired about having the school resource officer (SRO) remain on campus for an extra 2 hours each day. Since our current SRO is only contracted until 4pm each day, the cost for us to extend the contracted hours until 6pm for the remainder of the school year is $3000. That being said, the care program will be conducting different fund raisers in efforts to raise money for this goal. The sooner we are able to reach the goal, the better. If you would like to make a donation to this cause, you may do so by check, cash, or money order. The check should be made out to "Voyager Academy" and you should write "for care program SRO" on the memo line You may submit your monies to Latia Boney, or a lead staff member of the care program. Having an SRO remain until 6pm each day is beneficial not only to the after care students, but also the other Voyager students who may remain after school for tutoring, rehearsals, athletic events, etc.
It is very unfortunate that we live in a time where we have to plan for safety, however, the safety of our students and staff are a top priority.  Please consider donating and/or supporting our fundraising efforts. Feel free to contact Latia Boney should you have any questions.

Enrichment courses will resume this week. If your student is currently enrolled in an enrichment class, please plan for them to attend their course on the scheduled day and time.
