Hatch After Hours Session Dates 2020-2021 Flyer

Most of our vendors have been using the remote technology all Summer and are ready to lead great engaging classes! Our 4 HAH sessions are back-to-back (no breaks in between sessions (except on winter and spring breaks etc.). We offer HAH classes on the full days of school. Please refer to the D97 calendar to see all holidays, IT, PD, RPD, PT days in which we won’t offer HAH. When you sign up for classes using Homeroom.com, you will be able to add the classes to your online calendar, and your calendar will only show the days that classes occur.
Teachers will send any material lists ahead of time and will have your email for communicating any needs. Classes will use Zoom. Most classes online will start a bit later than usual (4pm) so kids can have a break after school to have snacks, step away from computers/ipads and have some fun then get ready for HAH.

Scholarships available: see this document.
