FLYERS Afterschool Program
“Fun Loving Youth En-Route to Success”

The FLYERS program was established over 25 years ago in partnership with Fort Mill School District with the intention of creating a safe place for working parents to leave their children that encourages education, socialization and outdoor exploration. Homework, crafts, centers, snack and outdoor play are all a part of the FLYERS after -school experience. Supplementary programs such as "Science and Nature" and CATCH are also provided to students focusing on sports, character building and environmental stewardship. FLYERS staff are all experienced teachers and caregivers that provide a 1:12 staff-to-student ratio.

Children in kindergarten through 5th grade will engage in activities that encourage creativity, social relationships, appropriate behavior and positive self-image.

Registration for the '16-17 school year is currently open. In order to register, please know that all completed forms need to be brought to the Complex on the Greenway at 971 Tom Hall Street, Fort Mill. For more details on enrollment, staff and other information, please contact us at 803-547-1045. 

Thank you for joining the FLYERS (Fun Loving Youth En-Route to Success) Afterschool Program. Our afterschool program is just one of the many education programs offered by Anne Springs Close Greenway, but also the most visible throughout your child's school.

Getting Started
The FLYERS Program officially starts the first day of school. For those new to our program, let your child’s teacher know that your child will be attending FLYERS. The children will be directed to the cafeteria where they will be greeted by the FLYERS Site Director and staff. When you arrive to pick up your child, you are required to show legal identification and sign out your child on the sign out sheet. Always check the sign out table for calendars, updated newsletters, and programs. Pick up time is 6:00pm. Avoid late fees by picking up your child on time. We do have Homework Center time and offer assistance to your child. The responsibility to complete homework is between you and your child. If you have any questions, concerns or comments regarding your child’s FLYERS experience, please talk with your Site Director. If you need further assistance, please contact the FLYERS program at 803-547-1045.

Program Fees
Registration and program fees for the first week should be paid in advance. Weekly program fees are due seven days in advance. Children with outstanding balances will not be able to attend FLYERS. Payments are made at the Anne Springs Close Greenway Recreation Complex in person or by calling the front desk at 803.547.4575. The Complex is open seven days a week (click here for hours of operation). You may pay for more than one week at a time. Weekly program fees are $73/non-members and $68/members. If you are interested in a Complex or Greenway membership, please contact 803-547-4575. Memberships must stay current throughout the program to receive the discounted rates. We do include a $7 sibling discount beginning with the second child. Once paperwork is complete, please bring completed forms to the Recreation Complex on the Greenway and make the $85 registration fee payment and first week payment. Paperwork may not be submitted via mail or e-mail and must be done in person. Become a member today. 

Payment Option
Weekly Automatic Credit Card Payment is available. You may elect to have program fees automatically charged to your credit or debit card on a weekly basis. Your fees will be drafted from your account on Monday for the following week. All banking information is held confidential. This is a great way to avoid late fees. Contact Michele Bruckner, 803-547-1340 or [email protected], if you are interested in setting up your payments on the auto draft, please download the Credit Card Payment Form listed above.

Late Fees
A $20 late fee will be assessed if program fees are not received seven days in advance of each weekly session. Late fees are automatically assessed to your account at 12:01am Thursday. No program fees will be accepted at school sites. Children whose weekly program fees have not been paid will not be allowed to stay in the program. Children will be sent to the school office to be picked up by their parents for non-payment. A two week written notice is required when withdrawing a child from the program by filling out a Cancellation Form listed above. During the two week notice, payments are still owed. 

Inclement Weather / Early Dismissal Policy

Any Fort Mill School District delay will not affect the FLYERS after school program.

If the Fort Mill School District is closed for an instructional day or dismisses early due to inclement weather, FLYERS after school will not be in session. Your child will need to take their alternative transportation method home, either by bus or car line. Please be sure your child knows which of these they will be taking in the case of early dismissal.

In the case that Fort Mill School District dismisses at its normal time but the school district has canceled all after school activities, and notice has been given prior to dismissal, FLYERS will not be in session. Please know that your child will need to take their alternate transportation method in this case as well.

If Fort Mill School Districts should dismiss at its normal time and the school district makes the decision to cancel all afterschool activities after dismissal, all FLYERS children will need to be picked up from their FLYERS site within an hour of the notification.‚Äč

Questions?
If you have any questions, concerns or comments regarding your child’s FLYERS experience, please talk with your Site Director. If you need further assistance, please contact the FLYERS program director at 803-547-1045.

Thank you for choosing the Anne Springs Close Greenway FLYERS program. We look forward to serving you and your child.
