Before & After School Programs

Director:  Mary Lee Howard

The Kennedy Before and After School Childcare Program is founded on the premise that all children should be in a safe and nurturing environment in order to develop positive self images. We have made a commitment to provide this program as a service to our parents in need of childcare before and/or after school.

Students must be registered before they may attend the program.  Registration for the 2020-2021 school year can be done online with My School Bucks* ( (*Processing fees apply.).  Payment for registration and first week will be due when registered.  The 2020-2021 registration fee is $25.00 per child. 

Please remember, any changes concerning your child’s transportation must be made in writing. We also remind everyone that you must sign your child out each day and only those persons authorized may check out your child. Anyone signing out a child must be prepared to show an ID.
