After-School Programs

Sports and Stuff

We are thrilled to report that Sports & Stuff has been given permission to operate its school program at PS 452 starting on Monday April 12, 2021 and continuing through Friday, June 18, 2021. The program is available only for students who attend school in-person on the day they participate. Families must commit in advance to a schedule each month (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days each week based on their in-person school schedule). Space will be limited each afternoon and registration is on first come, first served basis. If your child’s in-person school schedule changes, you can update their schedule accordingly.

Programs will take place primarily outside in the yard. If the weather dictates, the program also has permission to use the cafeteria. Both staff and children will follow all Covid-19 guidelines currently being implemented at PS 452. Pick-up will be curbside (families / caregivers not allowed inside the building) directly in front of PS 452 at the end of the day. You will text Greg or Matty and they will bring your child to you outside.
