Right At School: Before- and After-School Program

  • Right At School Logo

     

    The District anticipated launching our new before- and after-school partnership with Right at School for the 2020-2021 school year. The District has a long history of providing extended care programs for our families, initially partnering with the Winnetka Park District and most recently through our On Deck! Program. Unfortunately, as a result of COVID-19 and resulting change to our typical school day, the revised program structure did not serve parent needs to the extent that registration minimums were met. Fortunately, our partners from Right at School, well-versed from its work providing childcare for front line workers during summer months, were able to meet the childcare needs for our faculty members. We look forward to reopening registration for before- and after-school care in the 2021-2022 school year.  

    Right At School is headquartered in Evanston IL and hosted in schools across the country. Click here to learn more about the Right at School Program. This partnership will support the District in its ability to offer programs at Crow Island, Greeley, Hubbard Woods, and Skokie schools, affording families the option to keep children within their home school for care. Please note that this offering is dependent on enrollment. Right At School requires a minimum of 15 full-time students to be pre-registered at a location. While we are preparing for programs to be offered at each school, the home school location of students pre-registered by July 1, 2020, will determine how many and which of our school sites will host programs when school begins in the fall. 

    Program Hours will be aligned with the District's reopening schedule

    The Right at School Program is offered all days school is in session. Before School Session will be held from  7:00 A.M. to 8:25 A.M. (when regular school supervision starts). After School Session is available until 6:15 P.M.
