DeWitt Public School will be utilizing early release days for the 2016-17 school year, to provide professional development for our staff. We will also be offering childcare on these early release days to support our families.

All students in Young 5 through 4th grade can register for early release care, whether or not you currently use the KIDS before- and after- school programs. Although the early release care will be run by the KIDS staff, it will be a separate program than our before- and after-school care. 

To register for early release care: 

  • Students currently registered for KIDS before- and after-school care can register through their monthly calendar.

  • Student only needing early release care will register using the Early Release Care Enrollment Packet, which is attached. 

  • Early Release Care Enrollment Packets, and the associated fee, can be turned in at Community Education, or after August 18th, at any elementary building.

  • The deadline to register for Early Release Care is September 7th

Other information: 

  • Students will have access to purchase lunch or can pack their own.

  • Early Release Care Registration is for all 9 sessions. In order to staff and prepare, families must register for all 9 sessions by September 7th. There is no partial registration.
