Welcome to Berkeley LEARNS 22/23 at Longfellow!


My name is Mrs. La Tasha. I am your Berkeley LEARNS Program Specialist. I hope everyone had a great and healthy summer break. I look forward to connecting with my new and returning families. Berkeley LEARNS provides amazing opportunities for students and families through academic support, enrichment classes, and our superior sports program. Students must be enrolled in the LEARNS program to participate in an after-school enrichment or sports program. All families are welcome, and no one will be turned away. Waitlisted families are guaranteed a spot in the LEARNS program. Students are assigned to grade-level academic/enrichment classes for tracking purposes and are expected to sign in/out daily to participate. If your child does not sign in/out daily, they will be dropped from the program, and that spot will be afforded to another family in need of programming. To better assist your family needs, I encourage you to communicate with me directly by email to communicate absences or changes with the program schedule. My response time is usually within 24 hrs. Finalized program schedules will be completed and shared through email by Sept 1st. This time is allotted for BUSD clearances and contracts to be completed. 


Program Information 

June 13th- To access the Berkeley LEARNS Afterschool page online, click Then click on the menu at the top right of the page, and select your school and the grade. We will notify families of their waitlist status. Please note to complete enrollment a $15 registration fee must be paid. LEARNS registration system automatically generates program fees every 1st of the month, starting Sept 1st.  If you receive an invoice for program fees, contact me by phone or email to discuss program scholarships or hardships. LEARNS Program Fees are based on the number of school days per year and divided across the ten months of the school year. The program fees are not prorated for planned school breaks or holidays. Program fees directly impact the program's ability to keep operating. We encourage you to set up auto-pay online using your credit card or bank account information. Or call 510-883-5258 to pay by phone with a debit/credit card. No cash will be accepted. Scholarships are available. Please email any documents verifying your financial status. (2 pay stubs, w-2, or income tax return) You must send an email to confirm that your student is no longer participating in sports or is no longer interested in the LEARNS Program to prevent additional program fees from being generated.
