    1) Complete the Program Interest Form. Your submitted Program Interest Form will be time-stamped and places you “in line” for available openings based on the time it was completed and received. Completing this form does not guarantee a spot in a program as we must limit enrollment based on required adult/student ratios. Current Capacity: Before School- 100 students; After School- 100 students- if we are able to add additional staff to the program in the next several weeks to accommodate more students we will add students from the waitlist.

    2) Tuesday, August 6, 2019- Families will be notified via email about the programs for which they have registered. 

    Families with a confirmed seat will also receive information to Sign up for an In Person Registration Time at the school on Thursday, August 8th and/or Friday, August 9th. The $15 registration fee must be paid at this time to reserve the spot and can only be paid with Check or Money Order- no cards or on line payments can be accepted for the Registration fee. Families who cannot register in person may mail required documents and registration payment with a post mark of no later than Friday, August 9th and received no later than August 13th.
