AfterSchool Facts: 

Students who attend afterschool programs regularly are likely to show improvements in academic achievement and are less likely to drop out of school. (


An abundance of research supports the need for afterschool resources for school aged children and their families. The current estimate of the number of children who care for themselves after school is 14.3 million (Afterschool Alliance, 2004)


The hours between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. are the peak time for juvenile crime to occur in California. Afterschool programs provide children adult supervision and keep them off the streets and away from negative peer influences. (

Program Overview

Our Goal

Afterschool programs provide an important educational and developmental setting for an increasing number of children and youth. These programs offer opportunities for students to learn, develop, explore., and have fun beyond the normal school day.


Our goal at Hacienda La Puente School District is to provide students with academic enrichment opportunities and activities designed to complement their regular academic program. We also aim to assist with literacy and related educational development services for the families of our students, all in a safe, clean environment.

 Annual Afterschool program book give-away

On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, students from across the district at the 24 after school program sites received a free book to promote literacy at school and in the family home.  Afterschool program staff handed out free books to all the students who attended school and the ASES program that day.  If students and families are interested in receiving another free book they can stop by the District Open House which will be held on Saturday, October 6, from 9am-1pm, at the Hacienda Heights Community Center and visit the HLPUSD Adult Education booth. See you there!

Bike san gabriel Valley visits the after school program to teach bike safety

During the month of September Jose Jimenez from Bike San Gabriel Valley visited Cedarlane Academy, Del Valle Elementary , and Baldwin Academy to conduct a bike safety workshop.  The workshop is a three day event.  Day 1 is a slide presentation and discussion on bike safety and the rules of the road.  Day 2 and 3 consist of an obstacle course where students ride a bike and demonstrate what they have learned in the safety training.  The students who have participated have enjoyed the workshop and love the fact that they get to ride a  bike out on the school yard and all the time learning important safety lessons on how to ride a bicycle.  The workshops will continue into the month of October with visits to Sunset Elementary, Valinda, Workman Elementary and Sparks Elementary.

After School Marathon Running Club Final Mile Event

On Friday November 2, 2018, Los Altos High School was the host again for this year's After School Marathon Running Club's final mile event.  The program started in 2016 with five participating schools.  This was the third year that all the K-8 After School sites throughout the District had participating teams.  Over the course of the last twelve weeks, students ran at least 25.2 miles at their school sites during the After School program with the culminating event adding the final mile to total 26.2.  The event and program was a big success and helped to promote healthy physical and wellness habits for all involved.
