SUPERVISION and TRANSPORT:

We are providing a bus that leaves from the SAS High School entrance (front steps) at 3:30 PM.  A SACAC Aide will ride the bus and supervise the children on the way to the hotel.

For 3rd-5th Graders - A SACAC Aide will meet children at the MS Cafeteria, and will then escort them to the High School.

For 6th Grade & Up - Proceed directly to the HS front steps.

*** Please note that return transport is not provided after the lessons end at 6:00 PM.  Therefore, parents will need to arrange their own transportation from the Swissotel.

SAS ES GYM:

Children in K-2nd grade will be escorted from their homeroom to the MS Cafeteria.  The Coaches will meet the kids there and then proceed to the ES Gym as a group.  Please remember that children 3rd grade and below are not allowed to ride SAS after-school activity buses and will need to be picked up directly from the gym.

SWISSOTEL COURTS:

Once the bus arrives at the Swissotel, Our coaches will meet the children directly at the drop off area of the hotel.  They will then head up to the tennis courts as a group.

If your child doesn’t arrive using the SACAC bus or arrives late – The way to the tennis courts is via the Fairmont Hotel lobby (next to Swissotel).  Take the elevator to the 8th floor.  When walking out of the elevator, turn right to reach the swimming pools / roof top area – walk around this area towards the left in order to reach the tennis courts.
