What Parents Need to Know
MARION AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS
Stanton-Weirsdale Elementary houses the Marion Afterschool Program (MAP) for students before and after school. The program provides before and after school supervision for our students at a reasonable fee. Students arriving at school before 7:20 must enroll in MAP. If students eat breakfast at school, they may arrive at 7:20. Students remaining on campus after 2:35 must also be enrolled in MAP. Any child who is not picked up after 2:35 p.m. will be taken to MAP and charged a fee. If you have any questions please call 671-6265.
See the MAP website for more details.
Parents are invited and encouraged to volunteer at school. Volunteers are needed to tutor students, shelve library books, make games, and chaperone field trips. Stanton-Weirsdale received an award for maintaining the highest number of volunteer hours for all schools in Marion County.
