December Chautauqua

2019

Winter Break

We are almost there! There is no school and no Chautauqua over the break. Chautauqua resumes when the students return on January 6, 2020!

Enjoy the break with your children and families and have a happy and safe holiday season.

December Tuition

Tuition rates do not change for December or any month throughout the year. Rates are calculated based on the total number of days in session per year and a monthly tuition rate was totaled that would remain constant throughout the ten months of the school year.

Please keep in mind that all tuition is due on the first of every month. If you want to avoid paying a late fee, please enroll in our auto-draft program. Click the link below to sign up.

Auto Draft Form

Early Release

The District will release classes early on December 20. Chautauqua will be open for registered families with regular hours. You will need to RSVP through the Ipad starting the week of December 2. Please remember that we go by the information you give us. If you mark "yes" that your child will attend aftercare on the 20, we will keep your student in Chautauqua.

There is no cost if your child is scheduled for aftercare on Fridays. If your student is not enrolled in the aftercare program or is not scheduled for aftercare there is an additional fee of $12 to attend on the 20. Please note, we cannot make changes on the day of Early Release, we need to know in advance what your child's plans are for that day. We ask that you please do not make last-minute changes to the schedule for the safety of the students.

Schedule Changes/Contact Information

Please remember if you are making a change to your child's schedule including dropping your child from the program you must complete a Change Form. Changes require a two-week notice. When requesting your change it is best to start at the beginning of a week or end as close to the end of a week as possible.

Change Form

If your child is on a rotating schedule, it is the parent's responsibility to provide a schedule at least two weeks in advance to the Chautauqua Office. If a schedule is not provided, we cannot provide service on a rotating schedule.


If your contact information, phone number or email address has changed or has not been updated with the Chautauqua Program, please let us know. You can call the Chautauqua Office to update your information or you can let a Facilitator know your changes. It is important we have your contact information in case of an emergency.

Full Day January 17, 2020

The last day to enroll in the Full Day on January 17 will be Monday, January 6 or until the program is full. Space is limited so registration is on a first come, first served basis. The program will be held at Green Tree Elementary School. Accounts must be completely up to date to participate in the Full Day programs. Students must bring a sack lunch on these days as our cafeterias are not open. Registration is available on our website.

Inclement Weather

In the event of inclement weather, Chautauqua follows the procedures below:


  • If there is a delayed start to the school day, Chautauqua operates on a regular day's schedule.
  • If school is canceled for the day Chautauqua is NOT in session. Your tuition will not change as those days are made up at the end of the school year with no change to that month's tuition.
  • If school is released early, Chautauqua provides care at the time of release. We do ask that parents arrive as soon as possible to pick up students so that we can ensure that staff will have an opportunity to make it home safely.
  • It is a good idea to update your alternate pickup list for times when the weather creates a delay in traffic and prohibits you from picking up your child on time.

2019 Tax Statements

2019 tax statements will be emailed by the January 31st deadline. Individual requests will not be honored before that time. There is no need to email a request for a statement before the deadline.

Your patience is appreciated.
