Course Information:

Classes meet in the Burroughs Gym after school to start, classroom teachers will escort your child from the classroom to the gym. Parents must provide classroom teachers a note stating that your child is to go directly to the gym after school. Students should bring their own snack to have before each session. Students that attend Minneapolis Kids and Rec Plus programs are welcome and encouraged to attend, these students will also be escorted to and from the gym. Active Solutions after school classes are open to any student from any school. If weather plays a factor, classes will be held in the gym and alternative activities will be played; classes will not be cancelled or rescheduled. If MPS cancels all district after school classes for any reason; Active Solutions will need to cancel all classes and they will not be rescheduled (Ski & Snowboard Club is the only exception). Students should register for the grade they are attending this school year, 2023-2024. If a child receives regular one on one type services throughout the regular school year, Active Solutions requires the parent to provide similar one on one type services throughout the duration of any Active Solutions camp or class. Parents will be required to schedule and pay for any fees associated with facilitating a service provider for their child. See course listing and course descriptions for other specific after school class information.
