DeWitt Public School will be utilizing early release days for the 2017-18 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.
