• The After School Program is now operating 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) for all students K-5.  

     The loss of co-horts for the children has  doubled our enrollment creating a staffing shortage therefore we may have waiting lists at some sites until we are able to hire new staff. Please be patient as we navigate these challenges. We hope to have enough spaces available for everyone as quickly as possible. If you want to be considered for a spot please complete the online registration form and the program coordinator will let you know if a space is avaliable. 

    • We will NOT be enrolling additional Middle School students at this time.
