AfterCare is a helpful service Lausanne offers to parents whose schedules might not allow them to pick up their child at the end of the school day. Whether you signed your child up or not, he or she is always more than welcome in AfterCare. Please let your child’s teacher know the days your child plans to attend or e-mail your child's teacher before dismissal the day of. If you don’t get a chance to inform the teacher prior to dismissal, don't worry, your child will automatically be taken to AfterCare after carpool is over.
