A few helpful reminders that may make your scheduling easier:
Your child may attend our Before School Program, Lunch Bunch or After School Program on a regular basis or an “as needed” basis.
The Lunch Bunch Program may be helpful for parents who have a younger child on a nap schedule.
The After School Program may be helpful for parents who have a younger child on a nap schedule or an older child getting off the school bus. Remember, your older child may get on and/or off the bus at The Academy if he/she attends Region #10. Just let us know so our staff will expect them.
