OES Extended Care SUMMER 2016 registration open.
The Summer Program will begin on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 and will conclude on Friday, August 12, 2016. Summer hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Our program will be closed July 4, 5 and 6 for the 4th of July holiday.
Registration information is available on the Otsego Schools website www.otsegoknights.org , and is also available in the Elementary Office, as well as from Program Supervisors. Registration paperwork must be complete and submitted to the program before your child can participate.
There is a $10.00 per family registration fee and the hourly rates are $3.00 for the first child, $1.50 for the second and $1.00 for the third, with a minimum of one hour per session. All field trip costs are extra and are expected to be paid prior to the date of the field trip. Certain field trips will have a minimum number of registrations required 2 weeks prior to the date of the field trip and will be subject to cancellation if the minimum is not met. The program does not have provisions for students not wishing to attend field trips. If your child is in attendance on a field trip day they will accompany the program on the field trip and you will be billed the hourly rate plus fees. Every effort is made to return to the Elementary Building by 4:00 p.m. on field trip days.
Children enrolled in the program must bring a packed lunch each day and snacks if they choose. No cafeteria service is available during the summer. Children may also bring breakfast to eat upon arrival if they choose.
Please remember that students are active all day long and must wear tennis shoes or sneakers for their safety. Students engage in many activities including: daily reading, journal writing, use of the playground, periodic walks to Centennial Park for lunch and play, board games, card games, science experiments, making silly putty and play-doh, various arts and crafts, weekly swimming at Grand Rapids Pool, weekly library visits , several bowling trips, Imagination Station, the Toledo Zoo, sidewalk chalk and bubbles, and water games in the courtyard, every other Monday is Movie Monday with popcorn, just to name a few. Please see the calendar of activities for more details.
Our trained and qualified staff look forward to helping your child have an enjoyable summer experience.
