Before & after school supervision for grades K-8.

Supporting families beyond the school day.

Our CARES before and after school programs exist to further support our K-8 families beyond the school day. 

Students who participate receive assistance with homework, socialize with friends, and enjoy a variety of games and activities. 

While our CARES program is suspended until further notice due to our remote learning plan, we look forward to seeing our K-8 participants in person soon.

Morning & afternoon CARES programming is  suspended until further notice.
