Here you will find information about visiting the school and before and after school care.

Visiting the School

Athlos Academy welcomes visits by parents/guardian(s) and community members provided the visits are non-disruptive and/or by invitation from a teacher for a class. All visitors are required, by state law, to check in at the front office, and must wear a visitor badge while on campus. If you are bringing a lunch or materials during the day for your child, please bring them to the office to avoid disruption of instruction in the classroom.

Visitors and their possessions are subject to a random search with a metal detector and are subject to search when there is reasonable suspicion that such person has any weapons, illegal substances, stolen goods, or other objects the possession of which is a violation of school policy.

Arriving Before School & Staying After School

School starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. If your student is not officially enrolled in the Boys & Girls Club KIDSTOP program, or is not participating in an approved and supervised activity, he/she will be allowed in the building 10 minutes prior to the start of school, and should be picked up within 15 minutes of the last bell.

Please be advised that staff will not arrive before 7:45 a.m. and students will only be allowed to wait indoors from 7:45–8:05 on mornings when the temperature is below 20 degrees. Otherwise, students will be required to wait outside until the doors open at 8:05. Students will not be allowed on the playground before school as there will be no safety monitor on duty.

Before and After School Care with KIDSTOP

KIDSTOP is a school-age child care program located at Athlos Academy of St. Cloud. The program is provided by the Boys & Girls Club. The hours of operation are 6:30 a.m. until school starts and immediately after school ends until 6 p.m.

The program is also offered during some school holidays and during the summer. Scholarships and county child care assistance are available to families having financial difficulty.


The Boys & Girls Club is committed to making sure that ALL children are entitled to quality after-school care because the children of Central Minnesota deserve to continue to have a positive place to stay after school that is convenient for parents and fun for kids. The KIDSTOP program offers:

  • Life-enhancing programs that help young people see their possibilities
  • Full-time professional leadership
  • Parents only pay for the days their child actually attends
  • Nutritious snacks are provided daily
  • KIDSTOP is open every day from school dismissal until 6 p.m.
