Welcome to our School Age Child Care (SACC) Program! It is our pleasure to provide a safe, structured, and active environment for students who need before and after school supervision. Our program has successfully provided a safe haven for students over the past twenty-six years. Our program is supervised by both certified teachers and paraprofessionals currently employed in our district.

Students engage in homework completion on a daily basis, followed by a variety of activities such as outside athletic time, arts and crafts, movie hour, or board game strategies. Details about Aftercare are listed below:
  
Our Before and Aftercare Program is offered on a daily basis, starting on the first day of school and ending on the last day. Parents/guardians must fill out a registration form for each child being registered as well as provide a refundable deposit at the time of registration. All fees are listed on the registration/emergency contact form, depending on the program your child attends. Refundable deposits will automatically be carried over to the next year of service unless requested otherwise. Registration forms are mailed to every home in August. Registration forms are also located in the main office.
 
Aftercare is not provided on  emergency dismissal or early snow dismissal days. In addition, morning services are not provided on  delayed opening days. Payment for services is billed on an hourly basis to provide cost effective service. In addition, a monthly bill will be sent to your home. Payments are do upon arrival. Any overdue balances will disrupt use of services until the balance is paid in full.  
 
Behavior and Conduct: Inappropriate behavior such as, but not limited to, physical contact, excessive inappropriate language, or defiant behavior towards instructors and peers will not be tolerated. If an incident occurs, the action will be recorded and parents will be notified. A second incident may lead to termination of services. This decision is made by the discretion of the director. 
Please note that a nurse is not on duty during before or after care.  Should there be a medical emergency, 911 will be called.
 
Dismissal is promptly at 6:00 PM. Please be diligent when picking up your child. A late fee of $2.00 per minute will be charged. Excessive lateness may lead to loss of services.
