LAUNCH Fall Schedule 2022
LAUNCH Extended Learning will begin September 9, 2022, and conclude on April 28, 2023. This is a FREE program designed to offer your child additional opportunities to help him/her be academically successful while providing a safe and fun environment. LAUNCH will not be held if schools are closed.
If your child should have a temperature of 100.4 or higher or symptoms of an infectious illnesses, you will be contacted and asked to pick up your child at that time.
FLMS Behavior Policy
Inappropriate or disruptive behavior will result in your child being removed from the program for the rest of the semester. All school rules must be followed. You will be notified in writing if it is necessary to the remove your child from the program. At FLMS, we have a 3 strikes out policy.
LAUNCH typically is scheduled from after school (3:20 until 5:30 PM), Monday through Friday. The program offers tutoring, homework help, enrichment, physical activity, clubs, and a healthy afternoon snack. Physical activity, tutoring, homework help, and various clubs may also be offered before the school day begins. Morning LAUNCH runs from 7:00-7:45 am, if they would like to attend morning LAUNCH tutoring, they need to be at the school by 7:15 am. In the afternoons, we will have a snack and homework help from 3:30-4:00 for ALL LAUNCH students. We will then have club time from 4:00-5:30.
We will only have two dismissal times- 4:00 and 5:30. We will not be dismissing at various times throughout the afternoon.
This is due to the procedures we will need to follow to dismiss students safely. We also ask that students be picked up ONLY at the designated times. This allows our teachers to focus on their clubs and not constantly be interrupted by students leaving. IF you have an emergency that needs you to pick up your child immediately, please call the school office 865-458-2026 and tell the coordinator. We will get your child to the office ASAP.
Last year we found the curbside service to be the most efficient for parents and students during dismissal for LAUNCH.
Curbside Service Dismissal Plan
We ask that your child commit to attending a minimum of 30 days during the school year. Students should expect to spend a minimum of one hour each day they attend LAUNCH. Students who miss 10 days of LAUNCH during a semester, without contacting the program coordinator, may be dropped from the program unless the absences are excused. They can be added back to the program if the parent writes a letter requesting them to attend once more. Students that are excused from school that day, will be excused from LAUNCH, if they normally attend that day of the week.
We will follow the school and the district’s reopening plans. If it should be necessary to close schools, we will continue our programs with Virtual Launch. That information will be posted on our school’s website LAUNCH page.
Please call the school if you have questions. All permission forms must be returned to the LAUNCH Coordinator at your school by August 31, 2022. We will not be allowed to have students stay without a permission form on file.
