Information about the Registration Process:

- When it is time to register, go to "My Account". There you will see a form for each of your eligible children under "New Forms".
- Once you have added a class to your cart, it will hold that class for you for a few minutes so you can add classes from other forms before checking out.
Important Extracurricular Policies:
- All registrations requested after the registration deadline must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, are subject to a $50 late fee, will be reviewed by September 27 and are NOT guaranteed placement.
- If the HPTA cancels a class due to low enrollment you will receive a full refund or you will have the option of switching to another open class.
- No other refunds given except for medical issues. Medical refunds will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
- Refunds will be processed within 2 weeks after the start of class. Refunds will be made in the manner payment was made.
- Refunds will not be issued for individual classes cancelled due to inclement weather, illness, or other extenuating circumstances. Makeup classes will be offered whenever possible based on class space and instructor availability, but cannot be guaranteed.
- Prompt pick-up is required for participation in HPTA extracurricular classes. On the first occasion of pick-up occurring 15 or more minutes late, a warning will be given. An additional late pick-up will result in the child being withdrawn from the class, without refund, and the child will not be permitted to register for the following session of extracurricular classes.
- Extracurricular Discipline Policy: All children are expected to cooperate with the instructors and other children. Any child who is considered disruptive may be asked to leave after a conference with parents. The HPTA reserves the right to cancel enrollment, with no refunds, at any time due to disruptive behavior as determined by the instructor and HPTA.
- Financial Assistance: A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available each session. These scholarships are limited by the budget funds available. To apply for financial assistance, please contact the principal at your child’s school three days before registration opens. All requests are strictly confidential.

- NOTES FROM HOME: NFH will NOT be required at Center and Hopkins going forward but will be required at Elmwood. Instead - the rosters that are submitted by each school’s extracurricular coordinator will stand as your permission that your child will be held after school on the dates of the class they are enrolled in. Please send in a note to the school:
- if your child will not be attending their regularly scheduled class or
- if child will go home with somebody other than the authorized pick up person.
