Important details

If you are interested in registering for our after-school programs, please keep in mind:

  • PTA membership is required to register for any of our after school programs. Check your membership status or join now!
  • All students will need a personal device that supports Zoom to participate in our after school programs. BSD-issued laptops block all video-conferencing platforms and unapproved web content, including all formats of Zoom.
  • While parents do not need to be there physically for the entire duration of an online class, parents are expected to support their child to log into the class, use the technology as needed to be successful, and to moderate good behavior to the teachers. If you have any questions or need any support, please contact pta@medinapta.org
