Before-School Program

  • The before-school program is an affordable program for all students in grades K1-5. Before school hours are 8:00am-9:15am. At 9:15am, free breakfast and regularly school-day supervision begins. The before school program has several partners that support students during the before school program.

    This year (2023-2024), our Before-school hours of operation will be Monday to Friday from 8:00-9:15 AM. We recognize that this is a slight change from previous years, but it is necessary to push back the start time of Before School this year in order to give our custodial team adequate time to clean the building prior to when students and staff enter the building. 

    Financial assistance is provided on a case-by-case basis and credits can be used on weeks when your child will not need a full week of care.
    Days: Monday - Friday  
    Hours: 8:00am - 9:15am
