How do I arrange to have my child dropped off at Club Fit by the bus?
Parents call their child’s school and bus company to arrange transportation for their child/children to come to Club Fit. You then email Melissa Lawrence at email@example.com with the child’s name, allergies or other medical concerns, Club activities in which the child is participating, and emergency contact name and number. If there is someone other than the parent or guardian picking up please provide us with a name of authorized people allowed to pick up.
If your school is not listed, we can help you start the conversation with your school district to add Club Fit to a bus route. Unfortunately, we cannot speak directly with the school districts but we are happy to provide any information needed to ensure the district feels comfortable making the new stop.
This after-school program is currently full. For more information, please contact Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
