Summer Program 2017

DETAILS: The program will run from 7:30am until 5:30pm every day, except weekends and holidays. The cost per hour for children in the summer care program (K – 6th grade) will be the same as our After School Program rates ($3.00/hr – 1st child, $2.50/hr – 2nd child, $2.00/hr -3rd child).

The program will be for children on a "regular basis" (12 hours minimum per week per child).  This is billed weekly. The minimum charge of 12 hours per week will apply if your child does not attend, i.e., if you are on vacation, you will still be billed accordingly for your 12 hour minimum per child.

Unpaid balances past 30 days will result in termination of service until paid in full, or a written payment plan is set up with Mrs. Woodall. All balances from the After School Care Program must be paid in full before your child can attend the 2018 Summer Care Program.
