After-School Clubs

The ARLGP will be providing an after-school and remote learning program to Westbrook Middle School (WMS) students beginning the week of September 14th and running through Friday, January 29th (the completion of the second quarter).

The ARLGP will auto-charge your credit card weekly, biweekly or monthly. Let us know which you prefer on the registration form.

Registration Fee: The ARLGP collects a non-refundable $25 registration fee to help offset the administrative costs of coordinating registration. This fee is not applied to the enrolled student’s weekly tuition cost.


Programming will happen in the ARLGP in-shelter classroom. We know that safety and sanitation are of the highest importance. The ARLGP is deep-cleaned every morning with a veterinary disinfectant called Rescue. Rescue eliminates all bacteria and disease that can be present in shelter/veterinary environments, including COVID-19. Our classroom space is also cleaned and sanitized each night by a professional cleaning company. We have created a classroom-specific sanitization plan to utilize throughout each student day that includes disinfecting our classroom bathrooms hourly, and sanitizing all objects handled at the end of each day (markers, paint brushes, balls, books, etc.). We are proud of how clean our facility is on a regular basis, and we have taken as many additional steps as possible during this time.
