2019–20 Sequoia Healthy Start Afterschool Applications

2019–20 Sequoia Healthy Start Afterschool Applications

If you’ve been looking to join the Sequoia Healthy Start (SHS) family, now’s the time to sign up! Applications for the 2019–20 program will be available in the main office and Healthy Start office on Monday, May 20. We offer two programs: one for TK/Kinder and the other for grades 1–5. SHS is open to all families who attend Sequoia.


SHS Afterschool Program is a program under the East Bay Agency for Children. Our vision is that every student’s spark is kindled, nurtured and encouraged to radiate! We do this by offering a wide range of academic and enrichment activities, carried out in a safe and supportive environment here at Sequoia. We provide snack and juice. We are open from when the bell rings until 6 p.m. almost every day school is in session. Our activities include reading help, recreation, music, legos, nutrition/cooking, gardening and more!


Our TK/Kinder Program runs from Aug. 19 to May 27 and is funded by parent fees. We have three options to choose from: full-time, M–F ($440/month), part-time, M–W–F option ($320/month) and part-time, Tu–Th option ($190/month). Paid drop-in days are available for part-time TK/Kinder students.


Our grades 1–5 program runs from Aug. 14 to May 27 and is grant funded. The program fees are on a sliding scale, and no family is turned away for inability to pay.


Both programs give enrollment priority to returning students, siblings of students already enrolled and students identified as high need by Sequoia. The grades 1–5 program also gives enrollment priority to students who can attend the program
3 hours a day, 5 days a week.


Please turn applications into the SHS mailbox in the main office by Friday, May 31. Families will be notified of enrollment status the week of June 14. Please contact Deanna Grant-Curtis, Program Coordinator, at deanna.grant@ebac.org or 510-482-7213 x.2101 with any questions.
