The Manhattan Youth After-School program at The Clinton School for Writers and Artists will provide a comprehensive menu of activities for students of all interests and grades. Returning to after-school will be popular activities like the Clinton Post and Clinton Soup, Cross Country, Basketball, and Theater, as well as some new offerings like Cheerleading, Young Playwrights, and Mini-preneurs.

Daily Schedule 
After-School activities begin at 2:30. Students have 10 minutes after the final bell to gather their things and get what they need for after-school. Snack and gym sports are provided in the cafeteria and gym starting at 2:30. Students who do not check in with a Manhattan Youth staff member by 2:45 will not be permitted to stay in the school building. Students must stay for a 3:15 club to participate in a 4:30 club.

Attendance 
If you know your child will be absent from after-school, please email the site director no later than 2:00pm. We expect activities to fill up quickly, and for there to be a waiting list for some activities. If a student is absent from an activity without a note from a parent/guardian, he/she may lose his/her slot. If a student wishes to change his/her schedule or drop any or all after-school activities, a request must be made in writing by a parent/guardian. Students must not simply stop coming to activities.
