Submit your scheduling & behavior form
- You will need to go online to MyProcare to verify your child's schedule and make sure we have received your request and behavior form.
If you need to make changes, please do so before August 19th. Once teacher assignments have been handed out, you will receive another email requesting your child's homeroom teacher so we know who to notify regarding your childcare scheduling.
Automated Payment Application
We wanted to extend an invitation to sign up for automatic payments through Tuition Express. Please click on the Tuition Express Icon to download the application and scan/email it back or hand it in to our office.
Payments are generally drafted on or around the 1st of every month. Any change to this will be noted.
If you currently have a Tuition Express Account on file with us, you will need to fill out a new application or provide us with permission to continue using your current form of payment.
PLEASE NOTE: You will not be automatically re-enrolled in automatic payments without consent or a new form. Thank you!
UPDATED BELLS, PRICING & SIBLING CARE INFORMATION
If you have not been made aware, CUSD changed the bell schedule for the 2019-2020 school year, highlighted above. As a result, our childcare pricing structure has changed. Please take time to review our new fees for the 2019-2020 school year.
We will no longer offer Sibling Care for grades K-5, however, because TK is now half-day for the entire year, we will begin to offer Sibling Care for those TK-ers with older siblings. If you elect this option, you must provide the name and grade of your TK-er's older sibling for verification before we can proceed with scheduling and billing.
- Families with outstanding balances from the 2018-2019 school year will not be eligible for services in 2019-2020. Please log in to your account to make sure you are up to date.

At 8:00 a.m., we escort the children to their respective playgrounds to line up for school.
After School Activities
Afternoon Child Care, at all sights, begins once school is let out and students are led from their classrooms to begin the check-in process and then participate in a variety of daily indoor and outdoor activities. Each day we will offer an array of activities for the enjoyment of the children along with an afternoon snack. We also offer a homework club on Mondays - Thursdays at Village Elementary. Care is available until 6pm at all Village sites and 5:30pm at Silver Strand.
