Registration opens Thursday, September 14th at 10am!

Students are to meet the same expectations for behavior as for the regular school day. Students should show care and respect to the instructor and their peers. If a child’s behavior becomes a disruption, parents will be notified and the appropriate course of action will be followed, which can include dismissal from the program with no refund. By registering your child, you agree to the terms of the programs.

Explorers children are dismissed first at the end of the day. They should listen to the announcement which says “Explorers Students report to the gym.” They should bring their coat and backpack as if they are leaving for the day. All children will be picked up at the gym by parent or guardian at 4:05pm (unless otherwise stated in program description). Please park and enter the gym to pick up your child. To ensure the safety of the children, please have your ID ready. If your child will be walking home or picked up by someone other than the parent, please call the Hingham Rec office.

Please note the course descriptions to see if your child’s course has a last class share, performance, or off-site workshop. We encourage parent or guardian attendance.

Please notify the Hingham Rec at 781-741-1464 before 2pm if your child is unable to attend class that day. There are no make-up classes or refunds for student absences. In the event an instructor is absent, parents will be notified as soon as possible and students will be sent home at their normal dismissal time. If we are unable to reach you, the student will remain in the school office until a parent can be reached.
