DO YOU HAVE A PLAN FOR WHEN YOUR SCHOOL AGE CHILD'S SCHOOL HAS CANCELLED OR BEEN DELAYED?

We offer a safe, fun place for your child to be for the day. Fun activities for the day may include arts and crafts, playing board games, and engaging group activities. Other opportunities may include, swimming, gym activities, Ping-Pong and basketball. 

We do ask that parents provide a lunch for their child on days that school is cancelled. Drop-off begins at 6:00am and all children must be picked up by 6:00pm. 

Your child does not currently have to be enrolled in our before and after school program to participate during these No School Days, however completed paper work will need to be on file.  

Registration

Registration can be completed the day of the no-school day or delay. All forms must be completed and payments made the day of each use.
