Early Drop Off Changes for the 2017-2018 School Year

Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, the complimentary Early Drop-off program will no longer be offered in SPS elementary schools. We realize that many of you have relied on this service; therefore, we will continue the complimentary program this school year for previously enrolled families as they transition to other childcare arrangements for the 2018-19 school year.

Please note, we will not be admitting new families this school year.

If you were registered last year, you may reapply for the complimentary Early Drop-off program again this school year. Spaces are limited and admission to the program will be based on need due to parent/guardian work schedule.

Currently enrolled families who are interested in continuing with the program should submit an application no later than August 18, 2017 and include verification that early morning drop-off is needed due to parent work schedules.  The application is available in the school office.


Please click on the links below to read more about the changes and information about other Before and After School Care Options.
