The Latchkey program

Monday-Friday with early morning drop-off beginning at 6:00 a.m The after-school program begins at the end of the school day (3:00 p.m. or 3:30 p.m.) and ends at 6:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m., depending on the location.  Review the application packet for specific location times.  The program is only open on days in which students are in attendance.  The program is not available on holidays, vacation days, or days on which the school building is closed (i.e. snow days).  The Director reserves the right to cancel the Before/After School Program. In such an event, parents will be notified a week in advance.

A one-time $20.00 per child registration fee is assessed per year.  Payment for the upcoming week is due the Wednesday before services are needed.

All students are expected to be picked up by 6:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. (depending on the location) every day in order not to be charged a late fee.  If a child is not picked up a fee of $5.00 per minute will be charged starting at the designated end time for your latchkey location (6:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. depending on the location).  The latchkey clock is the official timepiece.
