Kids Plus Program Hours

Due to COVID-19, we are not offering in-person programming at this time. We are encouraging families to join our Virtual Kids Plus program. If you are interested in signing up, please contact the Program Office.

When Kids Plus resumes in-person programming our plan is to offer the following:

  • All before school programs start at 7 a.m. and run until the school day starts.
  • All after school programs begin at the end of the school day and run until 6 p.m.
  • On early dismissal days, the Kids Plus program will start promptly at dismissal time.

These plans are subject to change based upon safety guidelines that are set by the State and School District.

EARLY DISMISSAL

On scheduled early dismissal days, Kids Plus will operate from the early dismissal time until 6:00 p.m. Unless a field trip is planned, there is no additional cost. Students dismissed before lunch must bring a sack lunch.

DAYS OUT PROGRAM

Days Out programs will be held at one of the 12 elementary schools and will operate from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. During the program, various individual & group games, activities, and arts & crafts projects will be offered. Each Days Out program is different and may include field trips, themed events, movies, and many other special activities. Days Out program registration is handled at the Family Information Center. Applications must be turned in by the registration deadline. Each Days Out Program registration fee is $25 per student.

FALL AND SPRING INTERSESSION

Students who attend balanced calendar schools (Barkstall & Kenwood) can participate in the Kids Plus Intersession Program. Intersession is structured similar to a Days Out program but has additional themes, trips, and activities for the three week period. Registration for Intersession is handled in the Family Information Center and payment is due in full at the time of registration for each week of attendance. Intersession is sold by the week only. School uniforms are not required.
