"Early Release Days"

All families will have to register for these days separately at $30/day.  If families are already enrolled in the afternoon program there will be a $20 discount applied to each of those days.  



If you are currently enrolled in the after-school program on an early release day, you will receive a $20 discount on the tuition.  This means the rate will be $10 for the early release day.  This discount will be applied after you register and enrollment is confirmed.
