after school program

Elementary school families can choose from a robust selection of enrichment classes including free music and foreign language classes provided by LBUSD, plus fee-based sports, arts, life skills and STEM classes curated by SchoolPower. New for 2023-2024: The after school program has been expanded to include four total sessions for the year!

The after school programs at TOW and El Morro will be extended to two six-week sessions this fall. 

Click on your school below to view the early fall after school class lineup.  Early Fall Session runs Sep 11 – Oct 26.

The after school program is available to elementary school students in grades K-5. The 1-hour classes take place at your child’s elementary school following dismissal from the regular school day, Mondays through Thursdays.

Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:20 – 3:20
Wednesdays 1:20 – 2:20

*Kindergarteners start and end 5 minutes earlier.

Students enrolled in the after school program will be directed to their designated after-school classes at the end of the school day. Please pack a snack for your child, as snacks are NOT provided by the instructors. Bus transportation home is available for students with district bus passes. All bus riders, including Kindergarteners, depart school at the same time.

Due to changes in the district schedule, band, Spanish, and strings will not longer be offered as a part of the after school program. The teachers will continue to work with your students during regular school hours.

  • NO late enrollees will be accepted after the registration deadlines.
  • NO REFUNDS are given.
  • There is NO WAITLIST enrollment. If space becomes available in a class, enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis.
  • If your child is participating in the GATE program or referred for a support class after school, please do not register for other after-school classes on the same day. Registration instructions for GATE and support classes will be provided to eligible students by the school.
  • Enrollment can be accessed via a computer, tablet or other mobile device with a consistent internet connection.

Additional Tips:

  • The links to the registration portal will be published under the school sites on this page at the start of open registration.
  • Please make sure you are registering for the program at the school your child attends and classes for your child’s current grade level.
  • Click on the “Done” or “Selection Done” button on the Class Selection Page after you’ve selected your child’s classes before proceeding to the next step.
  • Once your items are in cart, you will see a green 30 minute timer to select classes for siblings, set up your account password, and complete your transaction.
  • Your registration is only complete when you see the screen with the heart. If you still see a green timer at the top of the page, you have not completed enrollment.

If a class is “Full”:

  • Before registration, plan on having 2nd and 3rd choices that your child is willing to take in case your 1st choice is full. Most classes will repeat in future sessions, so you can try again next session. Please note that we do not issue refunds if you change your mind after purchase.
  • Check back around 7:30 pm on the first night. The registration system automatically releases spots when the cart timer reaches 30 minutes.

Students must use the same form of transportation home at the end of after-school class as they normally would after the end of the regular school day. Only students with bus passes from the school district will be allowed to ride the after-school bus.

Bus service is provided to student bus pass holders to the following locations:

More information about District transportation can be found on the District’s website.

On behalf of SchoolPower and Laguna Beach Unified School District, we are absolutely delighted to make the After School Program available to our students and are honored by the community’s enthusiastic participation.  The ASP is a safe and fun opt-in program in which our students can try something new or continue to enjoy activities they already enjoy.

That being said, our students play a big part in making the program enjoyable for themselves and others. 

We expect students to treat people, other people’s things and their surroundings with respect and to follow the same school rules that are enforced during the regular school day.  

Participation in the ASP is a privilege, therefore, should students choose to violate school rules, they are choosing to experience one of more of the following consequences:

  • Temporary loss of after school program privileges
  • Parent contact
  • Principal conference
  • Long-term loss of after school program privileges

As parents in our community, you also have a responsibility to create a safe and fun environment for all students by enrolling your children in classes they are willing to participate in. We realize that classes sell out quickly, so it’s not always possible to enroll your children in their first choice of classes. We suggest reviewing the available options with your children before open enrollment to not only determine your children’s first choice, but also which classes they’d like to take if their first choice is unavailable.

Please refer to your school’s handbook for school rules:
